Yoga at the Lynn Museum

Friday Afternoon Yoga at the Lynn Museum

1:00 -2:00

Come practice yoga surrounded by artwork and artifacts telling the story of Lynn's rich history. Vinyasa Yoga is a flow class at slower pace with a strong emphasis of linking breath to movement. This deep connection to breath helps to draw the student's attention inward and allows for a deepening in each pose. The slower pace also permits for longer holds of the poses which aides in the muscle memory. Although vinyasa moves at a slower pace than power it is still a strong practice. This class is suited for all levels.

Class Fee is $10.00
