New! Restorative Yoga Sessions
Restorative Yoga is a 90-minute yoga class that has benefits to every person, regardless of age, gender, or physical ability. Some benefits to practicing restorative yoga include balancing the nervous system, deep relaxation of your physical body, boosting your immune system, and gentle stretching of muscles for increased flexibility. Props are used in this class for every pose to completely support your body and allow for full relaxation. Poses in this class are held longer to deepen the inward focus and to practice stillness. Bring a yoga mat if you have one or a large towel and wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. These classes are recommended for adults, and no registration is required. For more information, contact Lori W. at 701.476.5977.
Mondays – 6 p.m. at the Dr. James Carlson Library
Upcoming Dates: Dec. 17, Jan. 7, and Feb. 4
