Looking for a fun way to practice yoga? Why not visit the book store! Every Friday morning, Ravenna Third Place Books is offering yoga on their patio from 8am – 9am (weather permitting).
The sessions are led by Annie Price, a former bookseller who teaches yoga all over Seattle. Bring your own mat, although there will be several loaner mats available if you forget.
Annie asks that participants make a donation, rather than charging for the class. The suggested donation is $5 to $10. Annie teaches a variety of classes in other locations, and you can view her group class schedule here.
