Yoga classes will begin at the Howland Cultural Center with a four-week session Thursday, March 6, and meditation and movement workshops will take place Sundays, March 16 and March 30.

Classes and workshops will be conducted by Sarah Capua, a classically trained yoga practitioner in the tradition of Himalayan Iyengar Yoga and by her study of J. Krishnamurti. Capua’s teaching has also been informed by her training with Stacey Brass and from her time spent at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram and the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in India. Capua has taught many populations of students, from limber hipsters to children in hospital care, and always feels honored to have the opportunity to guide students on their own path in the practice.

The Thursday evening yoga classes combine physical postures, breathing practices, and a strong focus to create a deep link between body and breath. Movement is coordinated with breath in a thoughtful and connected practice, allowing students to experience the function of the postures in a direct and transformational way. Sessions are appropriate for all levels of practitioners.

Classes will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. and the four-week yoga session fee is $45. Drop-ins for Thursday and Sunday classes are welcome. The fee is $12 per class.

Sunday sessions will utilize breathing practices, simple physical postures, mantra, and visualization to move closer to meditative focus. All levels of practitioners are welcome.

The Howland Cultural Center is located at 477 Main St., Beacon. Call 845-831-4988.
