Steamboat briefs: Free Jivamukti yoga practice set for today at local library







Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a free yoga session for March's community yoga practice focusing on David Life and Sharon Gannon's "Transform Yourself with Jivamukti Yoga" DVD.

The 60-minute practice will be at 10 a.m. today in Library Hall. Bring your own mat and blanket.

The library's free monthly community yoga practice is for all ages, abilities and experience levels and is intended for anyone who wants to build a personal home yoga practice while checking out the variety of free library resources available.

As a community of yogis, the focus is on a different yoga instructor's DVD or CD during each session. Participants work at their own pace throughout each session and soak up the support of the local yoga community while absorbing the teaching of some of the world's most esteemed yogis projected on the big screen with surround sound.
