Free yoga classes at the Free Library of New Hope and Solebury starting October (Yes, you read that right)

new hope free press free library yogaThere’s cause for celebration: The Free Library of New Hope and Solebury is offering free yoga classes for a variety of ages beginning in October, and they’re not all booked yet.

During Kids’ Yoga (Fridays; Oct. 3, 17 and 24 at 1 p.m.), preschoolers can have fun learning traditional yoga poses while enjoying gentle, relaxing music. Research shows that children who engage in yoga not only develop their muscles and coordination, but also their creativity and imagination.

Teen Yoga (Wednesdays, Oct. 1-22 at 4:30 p.m.) not only introduces teens to the basics of practicing yoga, but also promotes a positive body image and self-confidence. Studies have shown that yoga helps teens with their concentration and decision-making abilities.

Not to be left out, Young-At-Heart Yoga (Wednesdays, Oct. 1-22 at 5:30 p.m.) will address the special needs of seniors, with gentle stretches to strengthen muscles and provide greater flexibility.

Certified yoga instructor Lynne Hewitt leads all of the sessions. She currently teaches Classical Hatha Yoga at her private studio, Ash Mill Yoga in Buckingham, and also teaches yoga at Bucks County Community College.

“Libraries have a tradition of meeting the informational needs of the public, but we’re taking that to the next level by offering yoga to nourish the body and spirit,” said Library Director Connie Hillman.

All sessions are free, however due to space issues, registration is a must. To register, visit the library’s website or call (215) 862-2330.
