 January

Gentle Yoga

Fridays at 10 a.m., January 8 through March 26
Beginner/Senior Friendly. No matter what physical ability you enter class with, there will ALWAYS be a modification that’s perfect for you, today, in your body. You will learn how to listen to your body and honor where you are, today. You will also learn how to explore the breath and how it affects the way you move. Meditation and pranayama (breathing practices) may also be explored. No prior yoga experience is necessary, all levels are welcome.
