Urbana Park District invites everyone to Meadowbrook Park, Saturdays this summer for a free morning session of Yoga.
Yoga in the Park starts this Saturday, June 8 and runs from 9 – 10 a.m., all summer until Saturday, August 24.
“These Yoga sessions are for people of all ages and abilities. It can be a fun family event,” said Elsie Hedgspeth, Outreach and Wellness Manager.
Yoga instructors will offer modifications. “That way, people can practice at their own ability,” Hedgspeth explained.
People should bring their own Yoga mat, but Urbana Park District will offer loaner mats as long as supplies last. “Wear comfortable clothing so you can move freely,” Hedgspeth said.
While the event is free, people can make a donation to benefit the Urbana Park District Youth Scholarship Fund.
“Yoga under morning prairie skies is beautiful. We want to have these sessions cater to everyone – from people who are yoga experts to people who are first-time learners,” Hedgspeth said. She added, “You belong in Meadowbrook Park Saturday mornings. Yoga is great exercise and a great way to make friends.”
