Stretch your limits with a little yoga at Mentor Library

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.

Jessica Humphrey from Awaken Yoga in Mentor visited our Main Branch for a free Beginners Yoga class on Tuesday. She taught moves that reduce stress, while increasing mindfulness and flexibility—many of which people could do from their chairs.

We’ll be hosting two more free yoga classes at 6 p.m. on Tuesdays, April 7 and 14, at our Main Branch. There are only a few spots open for either; so, if you want to register for them, you’ll need to do so quickly.

Also, Awaken Yoga is one of our Core Card partners. So you can save money on classes there, 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.

We also have several books and DVDs about yoga that you can check out, if you’d like.
