Trash Talk! Join local 5 Gyres Ambassador and yoga teacher, Kara Bemis, for an informative presentation on local and global plastic pollution which affects all of us – our health, our communities, our future.  Plastic is an ever present material that is in our clothes, surrounds our food, and is causing a huge mess around the world.  Things aren’t all doom and gloom however, learn about changes you can make in your life and with your family as well as positive changes that global companies are making to cut back use.  Following the hour long talk will be tea and trifle dessert to be shared zero waste style in a safe community space.  This event is being held at downtown, Jamestown yoga studio, Samsara Yoga Center and is donation based.  Give what you can, all are welcome, donations will go directly to the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy.

Vinyasa Yoga, Samsara Yoga Center

Thursdays, 6-7pm

I’m back to teaching a regular vinyasa class in Jamestown, New York at Samsara and I couldn’t be more excited. The past year has had me mostly teaching hatha yoga, which I also enjoy, but vinyasa was my first yoga love. Vinyasa is challenging, yes, but that does not mean that it is exclusive. Vinyasa yoga is for people who like to move, work, play and challenge themselves physically and mentally. Classes are taught to a varied level of students with many variations of all poses given.
