KYWC News: May-June 2021

Happy Spring!

It’s so great to see the daffodils, tulips, and flowering trees in bloom. And it’s wonderful to have the positive energy of yoga flowing at our Center again.

Volunteers Needed

We could use some volunteers to spread the new wood chips on the walkway at that Center. If your high school student or scout needs to do community service hours, this activity counts because we are a non-profit organization.
Call Steve at 315-583-5500 if you can help out. Thanks!

Yoga Classes

We’d love to have you come and experience yoga with us. Classes are suitable for all levels. Bolsters, blocks, straps, and blankets are props used to help you feel supported in your practice.

Due to COVID, we are asking you to bring your own mat and props if you have them. If you need to use our mats and bolsters, please bring a large towel and two pillowcases (to cover the bolsters). Please bring your own blanket.

Monday Flow and Restore 6:15-7:30 pm with Carla VanWormer

This class is designed to cultivate mindfulness, integrate breath and movement, and help you achieve balance for the body and mind.  Flow and Restore is a calming yet stimulating yoga class with a mix of active flowing sequences and more passive restorative release. Poses are held for a longer period of time allowing students to find their edge and soften into restful relaxation.  Pranayama and meditation is also weaved into the class. Props are used as tools to become more aware of the body and listen to its feedback.

Thursday Vinyasa Flow 4:00-5:15 pm with Carla (for the month of July, this class will meet at 9 -10:15 am)
