BEGINNING YOGA CLASSES

Darlene Gaskins, certified Integrated Yoga Therapist will offer an 8 class series of beginnerís yoga, starting Tues, October 7.  Classes will meet each Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 at the Park District.  The series will start with basic yoga postures and work into flowing sun salutations.  Emphasis will be given to proper alignment and proper breathing.  This class is for anyone who is interested in gaining and maintaining strength, flexibility and balance into their older years.  If you have lost strength, you can regain it.
