Yin Yoga Sundays
Sign-Up  |  Instructor:  Jennifer McCarron

This is an undeniably trans-formative, rejuvenating and meditative class in which deep-stretching postures are held for 3-5 minutes.  Little or no muscular energy is employed, but props helps your body maintain a shape or posture.  Unlike restorative yoga, you will be challenged to find an appropriate “edge” or feeling of stretching sensation, and abide with it for several minutes at a time.  Stretches and sensations go deep beyond the muscles and into the fabric of the body (connective tissue). Based on Chinese meridian theory, this practice nourishes the subtle and emotional bodies.  Appropriate for practitioners of all levels.

Dates: June 26, July 31, August 28 1:15 – 2:30 PM
Price: $16 drop-in or use your class “punch card”

Bob’s Atomic Burgers will hold a fund-raiser to help the Swift Family on Thursday May 26th.  30% of the day’s sales will go to support the Swifts.  Jesse Swift, who is recovering from stab wounds incurred during the break-in, has impacted many of Bob’s employees, so this one comes from the heart.
