Yoga on The Green

by Ann Self




On six Wednesday evenings this summer, yogis of all ages will move their bodies through a series of graceful poses during a new program offering called Yoga On the Green.

It’s a day and night difference practicing yoga in the studio versus practicing yoga in outdoors. There’s nothing quite like feeling the wind on your skin, hearing the children play in the distance and smelling fresh air, all while you’re doing yoga.

Other many proven health benefits include lowering blood pressure, reducing anxiety and relieving depression. It improves your circulation boosting immune function and mental focus. Studies also show that yoga helps with weight loss and even slows the aging process.

Yoga On the Green will be at 4:30 P.M. Wednesdays June 12 and 26, July 10 and 24, and August 14 and 21. Local yoga instructors will lead these one-hour community classes at The Village Green Commons. The classes are open to all levels. Bring a mat, towel and water. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to register. Yoga On the Green is free, but a $5 suggested donation is encouraged.
