Volunteers must be at least in 9th grade, and children of volunteers in grades K-8th are welcome to participate equally with our other kids, but may not volunteer. Please check out our website to register to volunteer or email us if you have questions.
Nava Life Yoga in the Park (Jefferson Park)
Sat May 12 10:00 am
I would like to introduce you to a Nava (Beautiful) Life through the physical practice of Yoga.
The physical practice of Yoga is the sequencing/flow of poses (asanas) that link the body and mind through the threading of breath and movement. The practice cultivates physical, mental and emotional balance, openness, intelligence, strength and well-being. It brings your body, mind and spirit into harmony and health to create a Nava Life. Class Level: Beginners – Intermediate. You will need a Yoga mat, blanket or large towel to practice on, a bottle of water and an open heart. This is a FREE event. No class if rain.
