New Living and our friends at Cura Yoga are proud to be sponsoring the 2011 Breathe The Cure Conference, taking place Saturday, October 29 at the Barbara and David Gibbs Recreation and Wellness Center at Rice University.The event is hosted by Breathe the Cure, a local non-profit “dedicated to bringing educational awareness to the general public about the benefits of breathing techniques, meditation and yoga.”
This year’s BTC Conference features speakers and classes to enrich participants’ understanding of healthy mind, body, and planet. Emphasis is placed on living a healthy lifestyle and especially on deep breathing and mindfulness as a way to achieve this.
Along with a list of other presenters, Keynote Speaker Barry Estabrook (author of Tomatoland: How modern industrial agriulture destroyed our most alluring fruit) will give his take on healthy living. Breathing and yoga presentations, many of which will be interactive, fill out the rest of the day. Classes will be offered by many local yoga studios, including Cura Yoga. All in all, it looks like a great way to spend a Saturday, and a great way to begin your own healthier lifestyle!
