what is yoga?
Yoga comes in all shapes and sizes in the modern West, but its origins actually began thousands of years ago in the East. The essence of yoga is self-discovery, which can take place in a variety of ways: including practicing physical postures, or asanas, like we do in a yoga class. When you take one of our yoga classes, you will be encouraged to focus on your breath, the sensations you feel in your body, and the thoughts in your mind. It sounds simple, but it can have profound physical and mental effects! It is not a religion and doesn't require you to believe a certain thing in order to practice it. You can show up to these yoga classes exactly as you are. Still wondering if taking a yoga class would be right for you? Here are some of the benefits you might experience:
Relaxation from deep, even breaths
Stretching out tight muscles
Being connected to your body
A feeling of being in community
An invitation to self-reflect or stay present
Our Community Yoga Series takes place April-October in public parks all over Little Rock. Our beginner-friendly, donation-based yoga classes are no-frills and accessible to all! Whether you consider yourself old, young, active, or inflexible, these classes are for you. The teachers we partner with to lead our classes are qualified, certified, and caring individuals who have the tools to make everyone feel comfortable.
With the emergence of COVID-19, the 2020 season has temporarily been put on hold. Please stay tuned for a revised class schedule!
