Restorative & Alignment Yoga @ Beaver Island Community Center
Jun 26 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

The Beaver Island Community Center is thrilled to offer for the 10th year the YOGA program presented by Lisa Theriac, aka “YOGA Lisa”! Please join Lisa and her associate Sue Screven for YOGA this summer!

Along with sharing this 4,000 yr. old practice, your generous donations for this summer YOGA program have made an impact on supporting the BI Community Center for everyone’s enjoyment. An opportunity where everyone benefits!

Lake-Yoga-EditNo experience needed for any class, just a willingness to be playful and try the postures. Modifications are always offered. If you are saying to yourself, “I can’t do yoga, I am not flexible”, only your mind needs to be flexible. We can all do yoga; yoga is for every body!

If you are an active practitioner you can play with your own variations.

As with any physical exercise, you should consult your medical physician if you have any questions.

Suggested donation of $10 to the Community Center.

Amazing benefits for ‘restoring’ the body and mind using relaxing seated postures holding for longer periods of time while softening the muscles and encouraging passive stretching to work on the deep, dense, connective tissues. With continued practice these postures help bring balance & flexibility to the body. We invite you to take the opportunity to nurture your body, mind, and soul. BRING a small pillow and/or large towel if possible. Two standing postures will begin class focusing on muscle action and alignment.

* Please arrive 10 minutes early on your first visit
* Mats, Blocks & Hand Towels available
* No perfumes or scents
* Suggested not to eat or drink ONE hour prior to class (maybe a small coffee)
* Bottled water for sale at the counter or bring your own
