Hatha Yoga Class

Thursdays from 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm

 

Celebrate Thursdays with a slow but empowering yoga class suitable for all levels of experience. We will focus on alignment of postures, while being mindful of body, breath, and mind. The practice of yoga is the perfect way to reset yourself in the season of renewal!

Classes will be taught by Huntington resident Tania Dornic . Tania is a certified and registered yoga teacher, who received her 200 HR RYT training in April 2015. She has taught classes locally at Balance Yoga Studio in Richmond, as well as at the Lund Family Center in Burlington through Sangha Studio’s yoga service program. Classes are $10 each, with $1 of that fee for the Huntington Public Library. While classes are drop-in, it would be helpful to know ahead of time how many plan to attend. You can contact Tania with any questions, or to let her know you are coming, on 802-355-4013 (call or text).
