Yoga renews and invigorates the body, increasing functional strengths, flexibility and balance. Improving circulation of blood and oxygen to the internal organs, muscles and joints is another one of the many added benefits of yoga. Yoga allows the focus to be on breathing, moving and feeling each pose, which facilitates greater body awareness and clarity of mind. Embracing the journey, letting go of competition and judgment, we learn to experience the joy of being in the moment with our bodies and our breath. Experience a total body-mind workout with yoga at the Battlement Mesa Activity Center every Monday and Tuesday evenings at 6:15 p.m. The cost for 8 classes is $39, but walk-ins are welcome for $6 per class.Irish eatingThe public is invited to Grand Valley Methodist Church’s corned beef and cabbage dinner from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at the Methodist Church at 132 North Parachute Ave. in Parachute.
