Come join yoga classes on Mondays at 10:30AM and Wednesdays at 6:30PM in the library's meeting room.

There are many health benefits derived from the focus on mindfulness, breathing and physical movements. Sleep improvement, increased energy and muscle tone, relief from muscle pain and stiffness contribute to better health. The concentration on breathing can also benefit health.
