June is Yoga Month and Family Wellness has a week of Yoga just for you!
Monday, June 20th from 6:00PM – 7:00PM
We are offering this special Outdoor Summer Solstice Yoga class in celebration of Yoga Month. During the Summer Solstice the sun appears to stand still before it changes direction. We will take time to reflect on ourselves with an outdoor yoga class that uses the sun as inspiration to re-charge, energize, radiate, empower, strengthen and calm ourselves. This is a mixed level yoga class using sun salutations as a guide throughout the practice.
This is offered as part of the regular group fitness schedule.
No registration required!
Free for Members.
