Free yoga in Almonte Jan. 25

ALMONTE – Hit a pretty Lanark County town Jan. 25 for free yoga.

The Surya Daya yoga studio in Almonte is hosting a day of free yoga and community building.

“We would like to invite you to our space, Surya Daya, located at 14 Mill St. in the Heritage Court, for a day of complimentary yoga, community, connection and celebration,” yogi Amber Young released in a statement. “Please mark your calendars for Saturday, Jan. 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In November of 2018, the studio renamed to Surya Daya Yoga & Wellness as the torch was passed to Amber Young.

“We have had quite the year, filled with so much growth and continued learning,” Young said. “We have been inspired by all of you, supporting long-time students and welcoming so many new people to practice with us. We are grateful to be able to offer yoga and wellness-based classes and workshops in our community with the hopes to help you to be healthier, more vital and at peace. Yoga has the potential to change your life, it brings a greater awareness of your breath patterns, releases tension and deepens your connection to your body supporting you to thrive. Yoga also helps us feel happier, in body and mind.”

Young has lots of options for visitors that day.

“Please help us celebrate our community and you,” Young said. “We have a very special day planned; come for a class, chat with our teachers, ask questions, breathe deeply, drop in for a piece of cake and a cup of tea, add your fingerprint to our community tree, or stay for the whole day. We thank our family of teachers and our family of students, we thank our town of Almonte, and all the leaders who have brought us these amazing wellness-based tools and techniques and the courage to share them.”

Preregistration is not necessary for the classes, and all the yoga sessions will be complimentary.

“Our regular class passes will be 15 per cent off, and be sure to enter to win one of our fabulous raffle prizes – including a 20 class pass at our studio,” Young said. “We are so grateful you’re here and that you value your own self-care through yoga, movement and meditation.
