Gentle Stretch & Meditation


Community Yoga Initiative organizes FREE community yoga and meditation meet ups!

Wednesday, August 28th we are facilitating a yoga and meditation meet up from 6:15pm to 7:30pm in Smith Hall at All Saints’ Episcopal Church (3847 Terracina Drive, Riverside CA 92501).

The yoga portion of the class emphasizes yin-style gentle stretching of connective tissue and the cultivation of relaxation. Every class concludes with a 15-minute guided meditation. The combination of gentle stretching and meditation can be very mind soothing and heart opening, and may help to increase inner calmness, gratitude and contentment.

Being able to move down to and up from the floor with ease is the basic physical requirement for the yoga postures in this class. There is no minimum or maximum age requirement and regular participants range in age from 7-70 years old. No experience is necessary and there is never a cost.

Comfortable layered clothing is recommended. Cozy socks and a blanket can also be nice. If you have a yoga mat or block please bring it. If not we have one for you.

This yoga and meditation meet up does fill up so consider arriving at least 10 minutes early to allow enough time to check in, settle in, unplug and relax.

Please be sure to remove shoes and silence all electronics upon entering the yoga and mediation space.

Plenty of free parking is available in the church parking lot and neighborhood streets nearby. Please do not park in the church parking lots spaces located closest to the grass and labeled "church parking only."

If you are looking for a space to be - a space to stretch and experience the energy of your body - to calm and quiet your mind - to expand your
heart - some breathing space- consider meeting up with us this Wednesday!

Cherie Robinson will be facilitating this yoga meet up!
