Event Description

Experience the healing powers of meditative yoga in the spiritual environment and natural beauty of Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha). Join us as we link our movements with our breath and cultivate strength, flexibility and relaxation through regular hatha-style yoga classes. Certified yoga instructors Carla Brems, Cheryl Lindo and Heather English offer six classes at Prairiewoods each week, including Gentle/Beginner’s Yoga (Mondays and Thursdays from 9:30–10:30 a.m. and 5:30–6:30 p.m.) and Chair Yoga (Mondays and Thursdays from 10:45–11:45 a.m.). People of all fitness levels and abilities are encouraged to attend whenever available. Carla Brems is an RYT 200 Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor. She enjoys teaching hatha-style yoga in a relaxed atmosphere so that all feel welcome and safe to appreciate and enjoy the physical, mental and spiritual benefits that yoga can bring. Recently retired from Cedar Rapids schools, Cheryl Lindo became a certified yoga teacher through a month-long training in India. In addition to yoga she enjoys reading, biking and wandering on nature trails. Heather English, RYT 200, began practicing yoga for the mental health benefits and became a yoga instructor in order to share these amazing benefits with others. Heather is inspired by the potential that a regular yoga practice has for impacting so many areas of life. In fact, it was her yoga training that motivated her to begin crafting as a career, to share her crafting with others, and to regularly explore the intersection of yoga and creativity. Let’s see how Carla, Cheryl and Heather can help us benefit from yoga! Please bring your own mat if possible. The cost is $60 for a 6-punch card or $99 for an 11-punch card. For more information or to register, contact Carla at or 319-533-3772.
