Lisa Kennedy, a certified yoga instructor teaching at the UAH Fitness Center, will introduce us to the practice of yoga.

This free, introductory level class is the perfect opportunity to discover a new healthy habit for a new, healthy year! Stress reduction and improved balance, flexibility and strength are a few of the many potential benefits of yoga cited by the Mayo Clinic.

This class is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Main branch's youth department. (But please note that the class is intended for adults.)

Please contact Luisa at lmorenilla@hmcpl.org with any questions about this class.

 

---------------------------------------------------------

In the How to do Things! series on the second and fourth Tuesday evening of every month, the instructor will teach the basics of a useful skill, craft or task, and then provide participants with resources or information to further pursue the skill. Find out more by visiting the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library's programming and events calendar at http://hmcpl.org/events. Read more about How to do Things!: Yoga
