Petra O’Neill, who teaches yoga at her studio in the Howe Center in Rutland, says, “For me, yoga means not only movement but also a way to bring mindfulness to my day-to-day and to share that with other people.” O’Neill describes “mindfulness” as using time to pause, to be more present. “Maybe using a meditation practice,” she says. “Perhaps you’ll use affirmations. That’s very powerful. Positive affirmations have been shown to help people through all kinds of struggles.” For more information, call 345-5244.
