Nava Life Yoga in the Park (Jefferson Park)

Sat May 5 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.
