You can now do the downward-facing dog at your local community centre.


For the first time  yoga will be offered at Jonathon Toews C.C., beginning in the first week of April.


The community centre said it looks forward to providing a well-rounded program to increase the health of people’s minds and bodies.


Classes will run from April 9 to May 28 and are open to anyone over the age of 18. Beginner/intermediate classes will cost $80 for 8 weeks and will run Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays; 55-plus classes will run Tuesdays from 10 -11a.m.


The instructor is Melissa Van Soelen. Her profile and class times can be viewed at www.dakotacc.com.


If you feel uncomfortable in front of others or are nervous about joining a yoga class right away, the club is also offering beginner and private sessions. These will provide beginners and those uncomfortable with yoga with the knowledge to participate in regular group classes. These hour-long sessions include an outline of basic yoga practice and poses, breathing exercises, and the principles of alignment. The price is $30 per hour and group rates are also available. These sessions can be taught either at the Jonathon Toews Community Centre or in the privacy of your own home.


Contact Melissa Van Soelen at dakotaccyoga@shaw.ca for more information.
