What should I expect?

Yoga Core aims to help you build strength and body awareness. This 45-minute class is all about taking care of yourself through a wide variety of seated, standing, balancing, and mat-based yoga poses focusing on strength, stability, and mobility. Core-based practices can help enhance balance and stability and prevent falls and injuries as we age. All levels are welcome. Participants will need to be able to get up and down off the floor. Chairs or walls may be used for balance assistance.

How much does it cost?

Yoga Core classes are free, just be sure to register in advance.
