Morning Yoga in the Barn

Join us for a slower flow yoga class with Tamreh Herlihy. This all-levels class will focus on breath and movement to begin your weekend. Tamreh teaches yoga to bring people closer to themselves and their community. The better we know ourselves, the more able we are to take care of ourselves. The closer we are to our community, the more fulfilling life becomes. We believe yoga is for every-body and creates the foundation for a healthy and vibrant life.
