Upcoming Events & Classes
New! Rejuvenating Yoga
Join certified yoga instructor Katy Aversenti Schumaker for this new afternoon offering! This class will be a combination of hatha yoga, a low and slow flow, restorative yoga and yin yoga. We will check in at the beginning of class, and Katy will customize the hour to fit the desires of the yogis in attendance. This is a gentle, all-levels class and is appropriate for all bodies. Chair yogis welcome as well. Please bring a mat, block and blanket if you have them.
We are presenting two interesting topics this winter in November and December. Our lecture series covers a broad range of topics, hosted by various local authors and speakers.
Entry fee: $10 members and non-members. Advance RSVP requested.
