The remaining free Neighborhood Namaste dates are:
Both events run from 6 – 7 p.m.
"We want to bring our programs to where people are," Hedgspeth said. "Some may find it hard to get to our facilities at Phillips Recreation Center, so we come to them."
Hedgspeth wants to make Neighborhood Namaste a true community event. "We hope people invite friends and family to this free event. Our instructors will train people of all abilities, so they can practice and learn about Yoga," she commented.
"Even better, it is outside," Hedgspeth added. She concluded, "Please come, bring comfortable clothes and a Yoga mat. You belong in our parks learning Yoga."
