Special Extended Class! RESTORATIVE YOGA with David Schouela
Sunday, September 7, 4:15-6:45pm ~ Join yoga & meditation teacher David Schouela for a special extended restorative yoga class.

As attention focuses on each breath, Restorative Yoga also cultivates the qualities of mindfulness and presence. Read more in David's recent article. $25 or class card + $10
