Participants will practice a 55-60 minute Hatha Yoga session with instructor Jacque Minarik. In this series, we will unwind, stretch, and relax. Hatha yoga is practiced at a slower pace, with focus on the breath, controlled movements, and stretching. Each week we will begin by setting an intention for our practice. We will combine yoga poses and stretches that connect your breath to your movements in a gentle way to help alleviate tension and stress in the physical body and mind.
Participants should wear comfortable clothing as well as shoes that can be easily removed. Please bring a yoga mat and blocks if you have them. Bring a towel that can be rolled up and used as prop support.

Jacque is an International Rotary Scholar and has completed 200 yours of yoga teacher training. She studied Asian Art in Japan and that remains one of her favorite memories and serves as an inspiration for much of her current work. Jacque believes, “Art is so important because it helps you process everything in your world and allows you to relax and ponder/process your ideas in your brain. It is also a time for reflection.” One of her favorite aspects of art is that you can spread hope and joy when you make art and share it. She is excited to share yoga and art with you!
