other ways to get involved
We offer many opportunities for spiritual growth, intellectual challenge, enrichment and joy through participation in activities of interest.
Inner Peace Yoga meets Mondays at 5:30 P.M. in the great room.
Certified & registered therapeutic yoga teacher, Dae Evans, guides you in core strengthening, energy building, and inner awareness. This is a spiritual practice of mostly slow and basic yoga, ideal for anyone interested in deepening their commitment to well-being and peace through meditative movement. Participants should be able to get up and down from the floor and have their doctor’s approval if experiencing a recent serious injury or surgery. The one hour class often runs 15 minutes longer, and you will need to bring a yoga mat and a coverlet for your body. Dress in flexible clothing and in layers when it is cold. No socks or shoes needed, and best not to eat two hours prior to class. Beginners and disease sufferers welcome! If you have any questions, please contact Dae at daeevans @ Zoho.com
