WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Aspirus Riverview’s next series of gentle yoga classes are coming up. The classes are held at Aspirus Riverview Hospital and are led by registered yoga instructors.
Gentle yoga will be held from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. or from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. on Thursdays, Feb. 8, through March 22 (no class March 15).
Gentle yoga participants learn to become stronger and more flexible. The class’ gentle, flowing movements involve time standing as well as on hands and knees. The class is designed to help with healing, sleep and relaxation.
The cost of the six-session series is $36 ($30 for those 60 and over, Aspirus employees and volunteers, and Aspirus Riverview Auxilians).
Gentle yoga registration opens Tuesday, Jan. 23, at 8 a.m. Participants may register and pay by credit card at aspirus.org/classes or by check or exact cash (no credit cards) at Aspirus Riverview Hospital’s front desk weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Early registration is recommended, as space is limited. Only one registration per person is accepted.
Aspirus Riverview also offers chair yoga classes on an ongoing basis on Tuesdays from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Chair yoga 10-session punch cards may be purchased for $50 any weekday between 8 am and 4:30 pm at the Aspirus Riverview Hospital front desk.
