Gentle Yoga is accessible to all levels and is comforting and relaxing, as well as rejuvenating. It can be practiced by anyone, anytime and anywhere. Yoga acts on the whole body, oxygenating the blood, releasing toxins and toning the digestive system.

Yoga postures (known as asanas) align and stretch the muscles and breathing exercises (pranayama) enhance muscular stretching. The exercise of Yoga massages the organs and glands and relaxes the nervous system.

"Studies have shown that yoga can reduce pain, improve mobility, improve balance, decrease stress, increase focus and improve sleep, said Kevin O'Neill, WKCTC vice president of regional workforce and economic development. "This class will be fun, safe and will benefit participants of for all ages."
