Seattle Yoga Arts: Free Community Class This Saturday

Seattle yogis, great news, Seattle Yoga Arts will be offering a free community class for all levels from 12:30 to 1:45 pm tomorrow taught by one of their teacher training graduates. These free classes might be happening a few more times so stay tuned.

I think it would be a great idea for all yoga studios across the United States to offer at least one free class a week (or at least a pay-what-you-can class) geared toward people – whether poor or middle class folks on tight budgets – who could really benefit from yoga. I’m all for making good health affordable and accessible to everyone.
