Yoga classes offered in Jefferson

The Jefferson Township Recreation Department is pleased to continue its adult yoga programs this spring. Students will be instructed in one of the oldest styles of yoga — the Hatha style by certified instructor Linda Mangan.

An adult basic Beginner Yoga Class to learn yoga postures, principles of safe alignment, and breathing technique is open to new beginners, those with limited yoga experience, or anyone just wanting to take it slow and steady. While doing these gentle poses, you’ll naturally increase flexibility, release tension, and build mental clarity. There will be 10 sessions on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 8:30 pm beginning April 1 and ending on June 10 with no class on April 8 in the Jefferson Township Middle School Cafeteria, 1000 Weldon Road, Oak Ridge for $35.50 per person.

A comprehensive, balanced class with a steady and relaxed flow will be offered in the adult Intermediate Yoga Class. Explore traditional yoga postures with basic to challenging options, and emphasis on safe alignment, breath, meditation, and guided relaxation techniques. This class will run for 9 sessions on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 8:30 pm beginning April 16 and ending on June 11 in the Jefferson Township Middle School Cafeteria, 1000 Weldon Road, Oak Ridge at $31.50 per person.
