Yoga for Back Pain Returns
Our popular Yoga for Back Pain class returns Tuesday, August 23rd at 4pm. It will once again be held in the beautiful Brevard Yoga studio, on the second floor of the French Broad Place building. Yoga for Back Pain is suitable for all ability levels and focuses on gentle exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles and joints involved in back pain. The class is donation-based, and is being offered as a benefit to SAFE, Inc. by instructor Ashleigh Gurtler and Brevard Yoga. The suggested donation is $10-$20. Your tax-deductible donation will benefit local victims of domestic and sexual violence.
Due to popular demand, Yoga for Back Pain will be offered monthly, on every fourth Tuesday of the month. Mark your calendar!

Special thanks go out to all who not only contributed financially, but who also brought food to share! We are also grateful to our hosts, 185 King Street, and the wonderful music provided by Alabama Highlight and Marc Yaxley.
