Community Yoga Class
Yoga is for every body - if you have a body you can do yoga! Whether you have never done yoga before, or regularly attend other exercise classes but would like to try something new, the library's community yoga sessions can be just the thing you need to decompress, unwind, and relax.
There are aspects of yoga practice, such as mindfulness and meditation, that can be adapted, applied, and realized in our day to day lives. A yoga practice can be a way to ground and center, to feel safe and supported in all that we do. When we slow down and harmonize with our breath, we can use the breath as a tool for mental and emotional self-regulation.
Give a yoga class a try if you would like to:
- Return to movement after a period of inactivity
- Reduce and manage symptoms of anxiety and depression
- Work with an injury/special condition
- Focus on a specific area of concentration within the 8 limbs of yoga
