Yoga in the library? Sure! We yoginis are enjoying ourselves, and yoga is a wonderful stress reliever. The class has filled, but if you want to put your name on a waiting list, give me a call. If someone drops out, I’ll go down the list to see if someone still wants a spot. There are other yoga classes around town, too. Before giving up, come on in and check out The Yoga Facelift, Yoga for Wimps, Yoga for Kids, or Boomer Yoga.
