Saturdays, Noon - 1 p.m.
Class fee: $45 (4 classes)

Join us for an enriching hour of Iyengar Yoga. Study the classic yoga asanas and enjoy the many benefits of practicing yoga: increased strength and flexibility, improved focus and concentration, and a quieter mind. Yoga is not a sport but it is highly compatible with running, cycling, and other athletic endeavors.

"When I started I had no specific expectations for what I wanted to get out of it. My mom had been doing it for some time and encouraged me along with my brother and his girlfriend, to try it out. It was more difficult than I anticipated, but I found that made it even more rewarding. I began to notice improved strength and flexibility that was useful in my everyday life, but more importantly yoga gave me a nice hour and a half every week in which I could concentrate absolutely on myself. During yoga, I am required to think of nothing except what I am doing with my body, leaving no room for any negativity from the events of the day. Yoga is more than a stellar way to improve your health; it is also an extremely enjoyable and therapeutic release."
Allie L., Senior, City High
