Yoga is a multipurpose tool for improving a lifetime: the essence of Yoga is nonphysical inner development. To varying degrees for each individual, Yoga brings inner quiet, peace of mind, character strength, and spirituality. We each relate to it and its many physical and inner benefits in ways that suit our individual needs and personalities.
This Mindful Yoga program cultivates the abstract benefits. It encourages a quiet, mindful awareness while doing a full range of classical postures. Postures improve health through strengthening, purifying, and toning of the body, as well as of the nerve, and energy systems. Improved health, self-confidence, and a feeling of well-being, foster the inner results. Although the postures are a valuable tool, their improvement of the body is a byproduct, not the goal of Yoga practice.
Appropriate for a range of students, the approach is sufficiently safe, gentle, and even-paced for new students, while providing depth, variation, and practice options for experienced students.

Come celebrate Midsummer with us.
The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, when the Sun is highest in the sky.
Summer Solstice has been celebrated since before recorded history, and across many cultures. Dancing, drumming, singing, a story - it's sure to be a great time. As always, we'll be teaching everything you need to know, including songs and dances.
You're invited to wear street clothes, renaissance wear or ritual style robes. Whatever suits your comfort level.
Although we'll most probably have a fire, bug spray may be in order as well.
Afterward there will be a social where we will share food, drink and conversation. You're welcome to stay and chat. Feel free to bring a food or drink to share if you'd like.
Note: The date is different from what was published in Parish Notes.
(If it rains, move Covenant Group from Parlor to 8/9 so ECSG can have Parlor)
