Start off with a great two-hour Fascia Release and Alignment class with registered yoga teacher Loretta Zedella, as we use foam rollers, small therapy balls, bolsters,and yoga postures to release tension from the body, revealing ease of body and peace of mind. Then, learn how a healthy, plant-based diet is a wonderful complement to your yoga practice or any exercise routine with Chef Mark and a two-hour cooking demonstration and sampling! If you are curious about how to get started with a healthier diet or looking to expand your kitchen skills and repertoire, this class is for you! Cost is only $65 for the yoga class and cooking demo together, or $35 if you join us for just the yoga class or cooking demonstration. We are offering Yoga Mat to Placemat at the following locations:
