Down Om Yoga

The Quincy Park District is offering Down OM Yoga in South Park, when the weather is nice and at the Quincy Park District offices other times, to be taught by Mahala Grant-Grierson. The class is held from 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Saturdays. A 10-punch card is available for purchase.

Join the class for fitness, flexibility and learn to still the mind through meditation and breathing exercises. Vinyasa Flow yoga will be taught and all ages, beginners to advanced, students are welcome to participate.

Vinyasa is one of the most common forms of yoga and incorporates a series of poses or flows. The class may also include some beginner level partner yoga, but no partner is necessary. There will be meditation to follow, for those interested in participating. Modifications will also be made for those that need it.

Cost is $50 for the session.

Grant-Grierson, the instructor, has received 200 hours of training from Three Sisters Yoga in New York City. She has previously taught yoga in the park and several studios in Brooklyn, NY, and has been a yoga student most of her life. She is a breast cancer survivor and started teaching yoga after battling the illness. Her hope is to help others through yoga and meditation.

Items suggested for the class are workout clothes, yoga mat, water and props, such as bolsters, straps or blocks as needed.

No registration required, but a punch card can be purchased at the Park District offices at 1231 Bonansinga Dr. For more info, call 223-7703 or email [email protected].
