Yoga Walks 12:30pm Thursdays

 

Join our free Community Yoga Walks 12:30pm every Thursday

Contact us   to register and learn where we will be meeting each Thursday.

A Yoga walk is blending a walk with some yoga. At the Beginning, I will lead some joint freeing series and gentle stretches, then we will walk for a bit then pausing to do some yoga poses, and being mindful to take in the beauty of that moment (present moment awareness = mindfulness)

Due to current COVID-19 Stay at Home Order we are only allowed 5 people for each walk. If there are more than five interested, I may be able to add  an additional walk on a different week day. Please Contact us

Each week, rain or shine, snow or wind, we will host our yoga walk. We will try out different trails here in KW.

This is a FREE program thanks to our partnership with Supportive Housing of Waterloo Community Health Initiatives. We are so pleased that our partnership has just been extended Feb 1, 2021.

? Please wear your mask ?
Yoga Walkers are reminded to please maintain two metre physical distance when using trails and walkways throughout the city unless with members of the same household.
