Event Series Event Series (See All)

Location: Elmwood Park

Free Yoga for the People‘s Mission:
As a public health and better living initiative, to offer the people of the Roanoke Valley a one-hour yoga class, several times a week, in a convenient public space, or online, at no charge.
We believe yoga poses (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama) and mindfulness (meditation, gratitude, and intention-setting) will help Roanoke and its citizens to live, work and play together better. Come join us and start, or end, your day off right!
• No experience necessary – just a positive attitude, a willingness to try, and a promise to listen to your body, and not hurt or judge yourself or others.
All welcome, anytime. Tell your friends.
