KYWC Classes and Events for Aug – Sept 2019

Hello Friends,

We hope you are having a wonderful, rejuvenating summer and invite you to experience the benefits of yoga and Tai Chi at KYWC with our certified teachers. Our classes are suitable for a variety of skill levels and needs. Not sure which class is right for you? Feel free to pop in and experiment or call the center to ask for assistance.

NOTE: This schedule was updated on Aug 12th, 2019. Several dates and events were changed since the original posting on July 24th.

Weekly Yoga and Tai Chi Classes

Tuesday 9-10:30 AM Yoga with Barb

Practice gentle yoga breathing and meditation with guided relaxation, a great stress reliever. The focus of Barb’s class is between accessible and challenging, creating a catalyst for discovery and healing.

Class is canceled on Tues, August 27th.

Wednesday 10:15-11:45 Chair Yoga with Barb

Experience all the benefits of yoga with the assistance of a chair, including breath work, postures, meditation, and restorative elements. Most postures are done from a seated position with a few standing or lying down on a mat using the chair for balance.

This practice improves strength, flexibility, mindfulness and an overall sense of well being. We all need to keep moving – this is a safe way to move and practice yoga.

Thursday 6:00-7: 30 PM Yoga with Jeri – class canceled for August – will resume Sept 5th.

KYWC June Classes and Events

Hello and Happy Summer! Welcome back snowbirds and summer residents. We look forward to seeing you at our classes and events. 🙂

June 21st is the International Day of Yoga. This special day was approved by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in 2015. Yoga has been popular in India since the 5th century BCE and the word “yoga” began to appear in the Vedic Scripture at that time. Yoga made its way to the West in the late 1800s and has gained an enthusiastic following for its physical and mental health benefits.

We invite you to experience the benefits of yoga at KYWC with our certified teachers. Our classes are suitable for a variety of skill levels and needs. Not sure which class is right for you? Feel free to experiment or call the center and we’ll guide you.

Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world, and nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being.— Narendra Modi (UNGA) 


Coming in July – Lil’ Yogi’s Wellness Camp

Parents- we have a special opportunity for your youngsters to learn yoga and mindfulness from Chrissy Purvis, certified Health teacher and children’s yoga teacher, this July at Wellness Camp.
