March 7th to 28th, 2023

$30 More Info

Explore classical and creative yoga poses flowing in conjunction with breath.  Class will begin with centering exercises, move through traditional Sun Salutations, and flow into standing sequences linking breath with movement. 

We wind down with cooling postures and blissful Savasana (rest to absorb practice).  With a focus on strength, balance, and flexibility—always maintaining proper alignment and safety—you can expect to leave feeling refreshed and a bit sweaty! 

Suitable for all levels, but you must be able to participate in one hour of physical activity independently.  Participants will need a yoga mat, two yoga blocks, and one blanket.

A roster will be available at the adult education office. • Please respect the facility by changing into a clean and appropriate pair of indoor walking shoes. • Please stay in the areas designated for walking. • Please walk, not run. • Listen for school cancellation announcements – if day school is cancelled, there will be no walking. • No walking on holidays or during school vacations. • If you have a medical condition or have not seen a health care provider in the past year, we strongly recommend that you do so before increasing your physical activity. • A person choosing to be involved in this walking program does so at his or her own risk.
