Cynthia Chin-Lee, Joy Lee (Body and Brain yoga), and LindaGrace Frost (Iyengar yoga) will talk about healthy living through community, food, and movement. Note: LindaGrace Frost will show us how to stretch using the kitchen sink! So be prepared to use your kitchen sink area.
Cynthia Chin-Lee is an elder of First Presbyterian Church of Palo Alto and chair of the Social Justice Ministry. She’s the author of eight books, 7 books for children and 1 for adults. Her latest book was Women and the Right to Vote, published by Scholastic Children’s Press. Cynthia was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2021, but declined surgery and radiation. Instead she changed her diet to a low methionine, whole foods plant based one, took supplements, and a hormone blocking drug. Eight months after her diagnosis, she had a PET scan and her medical team confirmed that she had reversed the cancer.
Joy Ohguen Lee has a bachelor of science in Chemistry from Korea University, a Masters of Science in Analytical Chemistry from Iowa State University, and has studied Computer Science at Cal State East Bay, Chabot Community College, and more recently has an AA in Psychology from Mission College. She worked for many years as a senior software release engineer at Oracle and Sun Microsystems where she met Cynthia. Joy got involved in yoga after a personal health crisis while working as a software developer at Oracle. She volunteered to teach yoga at her workplace during the lunch hour and completely changed over to become a yoga teacher in 2018. She previously taught yoga at First Pres in the chapel. Joy is currently a health coach and yoga teacher at Body and Brain yoga. Please be prepared to get up and follow her instructions. And turn on your camera if possible.
LindaGrace Frost previously worked as a clinical body worker and now teaches Iyengar yoga at Senior Coastsiders, including the popular class Wise Woman Yoga and Gentle Yoga classes.
Her classes are in person and on Zoom. Previously LindaGrace taught yoga to pregnant women and has worked with women in all stages of life. She specializes in therapeutic applications of yoga, drawing from her degree in Kinesiology and Physical Education and work in preventing and rehabbing dance injuries.
LindaGrace teaches a practical approach to yoga. She says, “When you learn to incorporate your practice into your daily life, almost anything can be a yoga prop. You can learn to do yoga in the grocery store, at the computer, or at the kitchen or bathroom sink.” With that in mind, LindaGrace will teach us some yoga that uses a sink or countertop. If you want to participate real time, please log in on your laptop, computer or tablet and bring it to your sink.
