Lancaster YMCA Offers Heart-Opening Yoga Series
Jan 31, 2014 12:11AM
The City Center branch of the Lancaster Family YMCA is offering an Open Your Heart Yoga Workshop from 2 to 4 p.m., February 8. The third session of a four-part yoga series, this workshop is suitable for both beginners and advanced students interested in counterbalancing the tension that often accompanies cold winter weather. Participants will move through a series of heart-opening poses that open the back and shoulders and allow the chest to expand, rather than contract, leaving them feeling energized and compassionate.
City Center YMCA Health and Wellness Director Amanda McFerren states, “In its many forms, yoga is a great way to relieve stress and let go of the physical and emotional tension that develops as we go through life.” As part of the group exercise offerings at the City Center, Lampeter-Strasburg and New Holland YMCA branches, yoga is offered year-round.
Cost: members, $20; nonmembers, $25. Location: 265 Harrisburg Ave., Lancaster. Register in person before Feb. 6 at City Center YMCA. For more information, call 717-393-9622, ext. 1102, email [email protected] or visit LancasterYmca.org.
