Inspired by Forrest and Ashtanga styles of Yoga, this class will be moderately challenging both mentally and physically. We will activate the body and quiet the mind. An ancient and well proven health maintenance program, Yoga can help participants develop flexibility, tone, and postural control. Participants can also experience healthful relaxation. All levels are welcome. Modifications of all postures are available for anyone working with any physical limitations. Bring your curiosity and dress comfortably.Karolyn Kinane has been studying and practicing Yoga for more than fifteen years. She became a more devoted student in 2008, after a low back injury and began teaching in 2013. Grateful for the healing, she is also fascinated by how yoga can both challenge and ease the body and mind. Her teaching style is intuitive and eclectic, drawing from many forms of Hatha yoga and teaching to students’ individual needs and goals.To Register:
