Outdoor Yogas canceled until further notice

I have decided to cancel further outdoor yoga classes for the foreseeable future. The COVID pandemic is still among us and recent trends locally have me not feeling comfortable with hosting an event which could become an epicenter of outbreak.

Outside Yoga Around Town, June 25, 7 p.m. LCC Downtown

This week’s Outside Yoga Around Town will be at the center of the LCC campus downtown. Plenty of bicycle parking. Easy to reach off the River Trail. There’s a Japanese Garden adjacent with giant Koi fish eager for you to feed them.

Plan to practice yoga, practice your yoga plan

Developing a personal practice is one of the most difficult, sincere and rewarding things one can do in a life. And while I’m applying this concept to a yoga practice, it holds true for all.

Peace amidst COVID-19 social isolation
