Many of you have seen our Teen Yoga events and asked, “Do you have yoga classes for adults?”

We are very happy to announce that the Jessamine County Health Department is now offering FREE yoga classes for anyone ages 18 to 62.

Yoga Flow is designed to improve the health, performance, and mental acuity of individuals interested in improving their level of fitness. Taught in a practical, user-friendly style, Yoga Flow is accessible, understandable, and doable by individuals at any level of fitness. Benefits include strength, balance, flexibility, muscle tone, reduced stress, mental stability, and inner peace.

Two classes are offered each week:

  • Tuesdays, 2 to 3 p.m., at Jessamine Christian Church
      130 Courchelle Drive, Nicholasville
  • Wednesdays, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., at the YMCA
