Kathy Navis of Junction Center Yoga Studio teaches and encourages anyone, at any age to begin exploring yoga as a means to better health and wellness. In November, she is offering two free introductory classes at Junction Center Yoga Studio in Jacksonport. They are scheduled for Nov. 10 at 8:30 am and Nov. 14 at 2 pm.
Navis’ free introductory class will provide beginners with some basic knowledge and practice of yoga including an explanation of the philosophy, the postures (asanas) and breath work (pranayama). The different poses each focus on gently improving the functional capacity of skeletal joints, muscles and connective tissue. By linking the actions to the breath, one also begins to “quiet the mind.” After a few sessions participants will begin to notice improvements in flexibility and balance. Over time, yoga is also a strength builder.
Classroom attire is freeform, but dressing in layers is advisable. Sign up for a free beginner’s class by calling 920.823.2763 or visiting JunctionCenterYoga.com. Junction Center Yoga Studio is located at 3435 N. Junction Rd., Egg Harbor.
