Calvert City is providing free beginner yoga classes for the community every Tuesday and Saturday. Take part in the indoor yoga sessions at the Calvert City Civic Center or join outdoor classes in the city parks during warmer months.
The instructor, Leanne Johnson, has been practicing yoga for 17 years. She is the owner of HealThy Self and grew up in Marshall County. She has lived in Calvert City for the last seven years. You can follow HealThy Self on Facebook by clicking HERE.
The class is free and open to the public. School-age children must be accompanied by an adult to participate. Classes will be held on Saturday mornings at 8 a.m. and Tuesday evenings at 6 p.m. in the Calvert City Civic Center. In the warmer months, Johnson plans to move outdoors to one of the Calvert City parks.
Yoga is unlike any other workout, Johnson said. She believes yoga can strengthen the immune system, relieve stress in the body, and calm the mind allowing better sleep and feeling better overall. She has experience helping participants adapt to their comfort level and it is her goal for everyone to benefit from these classes no matter their experience. “I love being forced to slow down and being able to push my body to its limits. There is a lot of good to be said for the mind/body connection and intentional breathing. It also keeps your body moving in all the ways you need it to,” said Johnson.
There is no pre-registration for the classes which are free to the community. Yoga mats will not be provided; participants are required to bring a yoga mat to each class. For more information call HealThy Self at (270) 349-4652.
