WHAT'S GOING ON AT MOSQUITO HILL NATURE CENTER:

Yin Yoga
Tuesdays, October 9, 16, 23 & 30

yin yoga
Yin yoga consists of a series of poses that mainly work the connective tissues in the lower part of the body. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady stretch. These passive poses are held for up to five minutes with the aid of straps, blocks, bolsters and other yoga props. This is a slow paced class appropriate for those with the ability to move through seated, standing, kneeling and reclined positions.

Cost: $25/4-week class or $8/session
Pay in advance or walk-ins welcome.
