Senior Yoga

Yoga enhances your flexibility, but flexibility is not required in order to begin. Clear instructions are given – both for your safety and so you can learn to do the practice on your own if you wish. There is no pressure to perform any pose beyond your present ability. Every class begins with a warm-up and concludes with a guided deep relaxation. Rollin Stearns began teaching yoga at the Integral Yoga Institute in NYC in 1970. Meets: M/W 10:30-11:30 a.m. (Foster Room). Member: $48; Non-Member: $65
