YOGA CLASSES

ArtsConnect Yoga classes enrich your mind, body and soul! Our experienced instructors teach a variety of Yoga techniques.  Classes  help participants use breathing, relaxation and meditation to calm the mind and yoga stretches to strengthen the body. Instructors use modifications for students of all levels, beginner to advanced.  

We offer several different yoga classes. For beginners, or those wanting a more relaxed experience, there is Saturday Morning Gentle Yoga. This class combines breathing, meditation with gentle poses.  For those with some yoga experience, we offer Thursday Evening Yoga. This class introduces students to breathing techniques, meditation, more standard yoga poses and is a bit more challenging.  Both yoga classes provide modifications for the beginner to the more experienced, so pick a day and time that suits you best!
