Donation Based Practices at The Living Yoga Center

Yoga Gives Sundays 4:00-5:00 pm
On most Sundays from 4-5:00 pm, we offer Yoga Gives, a yoga practice designed to rejuvenate the spirit, invigorate the mind, strengthen the body, and open the heart.  These are donation based classes which means there is no class fee although a minimum donation of $5.00 is suggested.  Every month a local not-for-profit organization will be the recipient of the collected donations.
Mindful Meditation Mondays 4:30-5:00 pm & Wednesdays 7:15-7:45 pm (currently on hiatus)
Present moment awareness can be elusive and we often find ourselves distracted or lost in thought. Through the training and practice of mindful meditation we can discover a calm amidst our to-do lists and more fully appreciate the gift of each day. Mindful Meditation is a donation-based gathering (pay what you feel is right for you) and is open to the entire community.
