The Parks and Recreation Department invites the public to attend a free yoga class to celebrate International Yoga Day from 7 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, June 21 at Woods Park, 33rd and “J” streets. Staff from the Lincoln Yoga Center will conduct a yoga workshop in the grassy area of the park. Attendees should bring comfortable clothes for practicing yoga and a towel or yoga mat.
“International Yoga Day is a way of honoring the practice of yoga, and it reminds us of the union we share as humans,” said Sheila Palmquist, owner of Lincoln Yoga Center. “Science tells us that being part of a healthy community is good for us. Everyone, regardless of our differences or limitations, is welcome.”
