    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 November:

    One month of Yin Restorative Yoga: $12.00

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