NEW! $2 COMMUNITY YOGA
Mondays at 5.30pm & Saturdays at 9am
If regular yoga classes are a bit out of your price range, you have trouble finding the motivation to practice alone, or you have been curious to try out yoga for the first time, Community Yoga is for you!
These casual classes happen in person every Monday evening at 5.30pm and every Saturday morning at 9am.
Attendees will decide on what style of yoga to do together for the hour, and then stream a class using the big screen. The Gatherings is grateful that Glo Yoga (glo.com) has generously donated access to 1000s of classes via their online platform, which allows us to stream many different yoga styles by certified teachers. We may do Vinyasa, Hatha, Kundalini, Restorative, Iyengar, Yin Yoga, and more!
After class, for those who want to, there will be time to ask questions about poses, help each other out, or share tips and stretches we’ve been enjoying.
These classes will be mostly beginner to intermediate levels, and are open to all ages. There are mats available, no special clothes are required (loose fitting is recommended) and there is a separate unattended playroom for children if needed.
$2 per person goes to the community center.

NEW! FOOD WITH FRIENDS
This popular monthly community potluck has returned to The Gatherings, every First Friday of the month at 5.30pm. Bring a dish or drink to share while spending time with your neighbors, make new friends, catch up with old ones, and fill up on a variety of home cooked dishes. We look forward to seeing you and trying out some of your favorite recipes! Donations to the community center are welcome.
