"Whether you have done yoga for years or have never done yoga before, and no matter what your level of flexibility, there is something here that will work for you, " Gessler said. "Let’s work on improving our mental and physical health together this season."

The first class is Tuesday, June 18, when participants will learn how to correctly move into and hold basic yoga poses, including:

Tuesdays will be vinyasa flow classes, and Thursdays will be deep stretch classes that will work for any fitness level, from those with lots of flexibility to those with no flexibility at all.
