Looking for a fun, gentle way to work some exercise into your weekly routine? Look no further than Gentle Yoga held every Thursday at 6:30pm at the Lakeview Event Center. 

This class focuses on increasing flexibility, easy strength building and balance. It is ideal for those seeking a slower-paced, but somewhat challenging, class. We also dont take ourselves too seriously, so be ready to smile!
