Join us Tuesday evening for "Using Yoga for Stress Reduction!"


This Tuesday, August 26, at the Pittsfield branch of the AADL, yoga instructor Victoria Duranona will host a Kundalini yoga program from 7:00 to 8:30pm. With an emphasis on the use of yoga to reduce stress, this program will teach participants how to be aware of stressors in our lives and about how these stressors influence us, our communication and our relationships. Victoria will then lead the group in some meditation and yoga exercises.

Wear comfortable clothing and bring your own mat to this program.
