Event Details

Take a break from your day and explore the world of Yoga at the Morris Center! This hour-long yoga session will be provided by yoga instructor Kelsey Lee, who will guide the class through a series of gentle and relaxing yoga poses.

Kelsey loves yoga so much it’s infectious. It’s as if she just can’t stop doing it, talking about it, reading about it, writing about it, teaching it, and applying it to everything she does.

Her goal is to make yoga challenging and bring greater awareness to both body and mind. She also tries to keep it light hearted, because life is too short to be serious all the time!

Beginners are welcome! Please bring your own yoga mat and wear comfortable clothes!
