Yoga with Fran
January 13 – Centennial School Library – Lac du Bonnet
Hatha Yoga refers to a set of physical poses (asanas) designed to align the muscles and bones and open the many energy channels of the body, especially the spine so that energy can flow freely. Hatha yoga is intended to create a balance of strength and flexibility in the body as well as a balance of effort and surrender in each pose. A powerful tool for self-transformation, Hatha yoga requires that one pay special attention to the breath, which helps calm the fluctuations of the mind. This allows the practitioner to become more present in the unfolding of each moment, resulting in more awareness and relaxation. This style of yoga provides a great stretch and strengthens the body.

We are at a time when making good choices, the right choices, seems more critical than ever. Fresh IE brings a message of hope, of healing, and of freedom through the story of his life’s journey, and his own personal pain and struggles. Hear it in his music, in his words, and see him live it!
If you are an aspiring musician or songwriter and would like to get some tips from a pro, there will also be a song/rap writing workshop with Fresh IE himself!
