About This Learning Event

Wonder Well in the redwoods as you engage in Lunch & Learn at 1440 Multiversity, a new offering designed to help you find inspiration out of curiosity. Relax, destress and boost your wellbeing with a Tao Yin (Taoist Yoga) experience at our private forest campus, before dining on a delicious, sustainable and locally sourced lunch at Kitchen Table featuring global cuisine prepared by our 1440 Culinary Team. Deeply nourishing and highly enjoyable, Lunch & Learn at 1440 provides a fulfilling opportunity to connect with yourself and other like-hearted community members while creating hope for living well.

About Tao Yin Deep Stretch & Flow:
 Based on the Taoist tradition, Tao Yin Deep Stretch & Flow (also known as Taoist Yoga) offers a rhythmic stretching and balance sequence. The foundation is set through four rounds of a series of stretches, lunges and gentle twists that build on one another and expand with each round. During this practice with 1440 Experience Instructor MaryTheresa Capriles, you'll stretch and open every part of your body from head to toe. Leave feeling awake and more connected to your body and your breath.

10:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
