Celebrate yoga by taking a free class at O2 Wellness Studio in Gardnerville on Yoga Day USA.
Studio owner Keri Sheerin and instructor Jennie Pitts will hold classes for yoga practitioners of any ability at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday. No equipment is necessary but Sheerin said to wear "comfy, stretchy clothes" and to bring a friend to learn about yoga.
National non-profit organization Yoga Alliance created Yoga Day USA in 1999 to raise awareness about yoga's benefits by offering free or low-cost workshops in communities all across the country.
This is the first year O2 Wellness is participating with two 75-minute classes.
"We'll go for all levels," said Sheerin. "I'll focus more on relaxing breathing techniques - the beneficial side of yoga."
O2 Wellness Studio is at 1507 Highway 395, Gardnerville. Information, 782-6345.
