This program will be held outside in our courtyard as weather allows but move indoors if needed due to weather or other concerns. Registration required.

    Join for as many or as few classes as you are comfortable and able. But please ONLY register for dates you plan to attend, as spaces are limited. Unvaccinated patrons over the age of two years old MUST wear a mask while attending in-person library events. This means children ages 3- 12 must be masked at events, even outdoors. We highly suggest but do not require vaccinated patrons mask up at indoor events.

    Instructor: Maria Polhemus

    Yin Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice.

    The poses are held longer than hatha yoga (1 minute to 3-4 minutes) and mostly performed close to the floor. There are few standing postures.

    This form of yoga is known for calming and balancing the mind, body and internal organs, increasing circulation, and improving flexibility and joint mobility.

    Yin Restorative Yoga encourages the use of props. For class make sure you have a strap (belt or scarf will do), yoga block (or book), eye pillow, and pillows, rolled up towels etc. for various areas of support.

    Please join us for a stress relieving hour of gentle exercise and relaxation.

    Each session ends with a guided meditation.


    Program fee: $4.00, per class.

    Note: We ask that you pay in advance for a full month of yoga classes.

    For October:

    One month of Yin Restorative Yoga: $16.00.

    You can make a non-refundable payment each month using our library’s PayPal account, by check or money order.

    Please make checks / money orders payable to Pawling Library, and mail to Pawling Library, 11 Broad St, Pawling, NY 12564.

    Make sure enclosed with your payment is your name, and indicate that payment is for Yin Restorative Yoga classes.
