Participants are asked to recognize current social distancing guidelines (staying 6 feet apart) during this program.

Teaching this outside class will allow students to maintain a safe distance, with not only fresh air but also a time to enjoy the river view and the beauty that surrounds our library. Come join us outside as we work together toward a healthier you during these challenging times. A limited number of mats and blocks will be provided. There is no fee, although donations are appreciated.
