WINTER IS ENDING, SPRING IS COMING!
The Winter Term is winding down, and the Spring Term begins April 1, after a week of make-up and drop-in classes. Come to Peggy’s or Lynn’s classes at no cost if you need to make-up, or drop in for only $10 if you’ve used up your series. The 12-week Spring Term will be $120 for 1 weekly class or $230 for 2 weekly classes, for members (nonmembers add $20). Annual membership ranges from $15-$200 and includes our beautiful, soon to be classic, yoga sutra tshirt.
Peggy’s 50+ Seniors class meets on THURSDAYS 11am instead of Wednesdays. This class is appropriate not only for seniors but for anyone needing a more supported, gently-paced class for special needs.
For the time being, we will be staying put at 731 E. Locust. We continue to pursue a strong prospective new space which we may be able to move into this summer. We will certainly let you know as soon as plans are finalized. If you have skills in real estate, finance, or building construction and want to join our Site Committee, let us know.
