In 2011, we offered free yoga in Washington Park and look at what happened. There were a farmers market and movie night and free yoga! Then Military Park opened and more free yoga classes.

Now a wonderful thing has happened. Audible, whose headquarters is right across from Washington Park, has cleaned up the park and also put in a really cool installation. So now they are also organizing from this Monday, August 5 through mid-October, all kinds of activities for everyone including bringing FREE YOGA back.

We remember when Barry Carter the writer extraordinaire, came and wrote an article about us and this free yoga and our mission to share yoga with children and the community through lots of school programs and of course free community yoga. He was blown away when a man rode through on his bike, watched what was going on and then put down his bike and joined in.

We are grateful yoga has taken root in Newark with so many thousands of children and adults and also sustains a yoga studio, I'm So Yoga Newark.

Yoga means to yoke, to bring together. We hope you will join us on Monday and spread the word about this class and all other free classes this week.

Namaste.
