The Okefenokee Heritage Center is proud to host a yoga class focused on healing. The class is focused on healing and is aimed at women with health issues looking for extra support in a kind and caring environment.

Mary has been trained/licensed to teach Zumba Gold, which is low-impact dance targeting older adults, those with medical issues and those who may be differently abled or simply wanting to avoid the risks of high-impact dance/movement. In 2014 she received her 200 hour certification to teach yoga, with a specialization in Kundalini yoga, and is a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance. In 2014 she became a certified facilitator for Y12SR groups – the yoga of 12 step recovery.
“I want to take away some of the stigma of yoga. This class will include modifications and chair poses for people to participate at their own pace and comfort.”
Classes will run through December 11 am – 12 pm. Only 2 spaces remain. Classes are $10 for one session or $32 for a month. Students are advised to complete a pre-screening by calling 912-285-4260 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
