  • Saturdays 11:30am with Eve Holbrook beginning February 6
  • Sundays 3:30pm with Dan Shuman beginning February 14

Yoga teaches us how to address many layers of our being. In the upcoming 3-week Special Series, turn your attention to specific parts of the body and learn how they are connected to the whole: 

  • Healthy Neck & Shoulders with Naghmeh Ahi, Saturdays 2:00pm beginning February 6
