This series of yoga classes will start with mindful centering with breath, then go to poses for gentle stretching, strengthening and toning. The class will always conclude with a relaxing meditation. Each stage will focus on balancing your body, mind and spirit.  Please bring your yoga mat and blanket. If you have yoga blocks, straps or other props that will help you, please bring them as well.  No registration is required for this program. However, it is a first come first serve basis.
