Yoga and Poetry by Candlelight

Join us on Final Friday in November for Yoga and Poetry by Candlelight

The Event

This event is *free* and open to everyone, whether you've been practicing yoga for years or are curiously considering a yoga practice.

Replenish your body and soul in yoga and poetry by candlelight with yoga teachers Anne Underwood, Gopi Sandal, and Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg. Caryn will also be serenading us in various asanas (poses) with poetry from her newest book, Following the Curve. 

Following a restorative class, designed to help us come home to our bodies and breathe our way to greater gratitude, we'll enjoy tea, scones, and fruit. 

Books will be available for sale, as well as information about classes at the Yoga Center of Lawrence and Westside Yoga. 

We've had a lot of interest in this event. Sign up online to reserve your spot!
