Several other classes, each an hour and 15 minutes long, will also be held throughout the day, for $10 per adult and $5 per student:

• 10:30, Hatha Yoga with Monique Christiensen

All proceeds benefit St. Lawrence Valley Renewal House, sheltering and helping victims of family violence.

Claimed benefits of yoga include improved strength, posture, lung capacity, flexibility, concentration and mood, and a decrease in stress and anxiety.
