Gentle Yoga / Online Class

The focus of this one hour hatha yoga class is to increase strength, flexibility and balance while simultaneously alleviating stress and fatigue. Additional benefits of regular yoga practice include an overall sense of well-being and an increase in self-awareness and self-acceptance. Participants must be aware of their own capabilities in order to participate safely. Ability to get up and down from the floor is encouraged. Please have a mat, two blankets and a lightweight portable chair for each Zoom class. Register online at ashland.or.us/register or call 541.488.5342. Please note that online registration closes at noon the day before the start of a session, after which the Zoom link will be emailed.
