Special Summer Yoga Session starts July 9
Wednesdays, 5:30 - 7:00 p.m., Community Room
Join us for a yoga class every Wednesday evening this summer from 5:30-7 pm, sponsored by the Friends of the Rowley Library. Classes are $12 each or $10 for Friends members. All fitness levels are welcome - bring a mat if you have one and wear comfortable clothes. No registration required.     
Our guest teacher for the summer, Elissa Shoreman,
is the owner / founder of Buddhaful Souls Yoga Studio here in Rowley. She states: 
"I am so grateful for the gift of yoga. I quickly fell in love with the practice and have returned to my mat over and over for the peace, stillness, presence, and joy I find in that sacred space.I am continually awed by the power of yoga to heal and support my body, mind, and spirit. It has enabled me to feel more joy in my life, depth in my relationships, and ease in my body. I am passionate about sharing this heart-centered art and science with children and adults to help bring more inner peace and personal transformation in this hectic, stress-filled world. I bow to the love and light in you."
