You don’t need to be able to do a handstand or reach your leg behind your head to try yoga.
If you can sit in a chair and breathe, then you can start to derive the benefits of yoga. And what do those benefits include? Everything from reduced stress and boosted immunity to weight loss and stronger muscles.
Cathy Picozzi from Awaken Yoga in Mentor visited our Main Branch Monday to talk about the history of yoga, its current popularity, its health benefits, and she also taught some simple poses even the newest of beginners could do.
If your curiosity is piqued, you can learn more by taking a class at Awaken Yoga. It can help if your New Year’s Resolution is to lose weight or reduce stress.
Also, Awaken Yoga is one of our Core Card partners. So you can save money on classes, as well. If you pay for a 5-class package with Awaken Yoga, you get the sixth class for free—just because you have a Mentor Library card.
