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)

Weekly Yoga 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 June 4th.
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. Chair yoga is good for everyone, including individuals with physical limitations that make a yoga practice difficult without having a chair for support. 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.
Class is canceled on June 5th.
