Yoga

Yoga is an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind, and spirit. The continued practice of yoga will lead you to a sense of peace and well-being, and also a feeling of being at one with their environment. The practice of yoga makes the body strong and flexible, it also improves the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and hormonal systems. Yoga brings about emotional stability and clarity of mind.

A beginner’s yoga class will be held at the Faulkner County Library. The class will meet once a week, every Wednesday from 7-8pm beginning February 18th. The instructor will be experienced yogi Tori Houston. The class is on going, free and open to the public. No sign up is required. Yoga mats and blocks provided to the first 20 people who show up. Arrive by 6:55pm. Bring your mat if you have one. Wednesday night yoga will meet at the bottom of the library.
The library will still have on-going Tuesday night yoga as well from 7 to 8pm with experienced yoga instructor Nicole Hare. Come to one or the other or both!

Above are the exact words from the library that are on the facebook group to attend this class. As of now there are 33 confirmed people that are attending Tori's class. How exciting for her!! This job actually found Tori....she had emailed the girl (Sarah) at the library to see what time the classes started. They got to talking and she asked Tori how long she had been doing Yoga. Tori told her 3 years. She offered Tori a job every Wednesday with pay! Tori called me to ask what I thought; I of course told her to take it!! So here she is 1 month later getting ready to teach her first class.

Her boyfriend, Nick made her a mix CD for the class. The other girl doesn't use music. She has practiced her routine every morning making sure to keep it at a level of intensity that every one will feel comfortable with.

Tori~ I'm proud of you! I'm so happy you have a job that you love!! Call me after your class...I want to hear all about it!! I love you, baby bird...beaucoup!

I would love to take her class. I can't imagine doing a yoga class without the music. It's been about six months since I've been to a class. I need it.

Hope it goes well for her and she enjoys it.
