the project

The yoga sessions that this project is supporting take place on Saturday mornings in a peaceful, idyllic setting of the meadow in Franz Sigel park.

the steps

The schedule for the yoga sessions is set at 9:00 a.m. each Saturday morning of June, July and August 2018.  However, the funding for the project will not last through the end of August.  With your additional support, we can ensure yoga sessions are provided through the end of August, and we may be able to schedule additional sessions in September.

why we're doing it

These yoga sessions set in the peacful and beautiful meadow of Franz Sigel park are a great way to bring the community together and encourage people to focus on healthy living and the beauty of our local parks. Yoga offers many medical benefits, such as reducing chronic pain, lowering blood pressure, increasing flexibility, and improving respiration, among many others.  Yoga also offers mental health benefits, as well; the meditation and breathing elements help relieve chronic stress patterns. Paying for a private yoga sessions is a barrier to many in our neighborhood.  By offering no-cost yoga sessions, many members of our community who might not otherwise be inclined to experience yoga, are likely to give it a try.   And, by holding the sessions in a visible location, the sessions draw interest from those unfamiliar with yoga and the health benefits it offers.
