Yoga Day USA: enjoy free yoga classes Saturday


This Saturday, January 22, yogis and non-yogis alike will be partaking in free yoga classes across the country. The occasion? Yoga Day USA: a national celebration to raise awareness of the benefits of yoga, and introduce newbies to the profound benefits of the ancient practice.

The event was created by Yoga Alliance, the national education and support organization for yoga in the United States, in an effort to get more people, who don't normally attend yoga classes, to try it out and experience the benefits firsthand.

In San Antonio, Yoga Shala, 18585 Sigma Road, Suite 105, will be offering free classes throughout the day, beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing until 5 p.m. Other studios participating in the event at Yoga Shala include Nydia's Yoga Therapy, The Synergy Studio, and Two Rivers Yoga. Donations will benefit Big Brothers & Big Sisters and the San Antonio Food Bank.

If you want to participate but are feeling a little shy (or don't want to make the trek out to 1604), check out online yoga sites such as Yoga Poses, Yoga Yak, or Free Online Animated Yoga. These sites are great for getting your feet wet.
