Yoga Anyone?

Wednesday, March 30th from 10:30 AM-11:30 AM

At Penn’s Village we strive to keep our members active, involved and informed. One unique opportunity we recently encountered involves the ancient practice of yoga, which has proven benefits for the body -- yoga builds flexibility and strength and can relieve chronic pain -- and for the mind -- yoga increases focus and provides stress relief.


Esther Wyss-Flamm is a Kripalu-certified yoga teacher with specific training in yoga for chronic health conditions through Duke University’s Center for Integrative Health. She specializes in teaching motivated older adults seeking to reconnect with their innate strength, purpose, and joy,

Yogadespite health concerns such as arthritis, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, joint replacement. Esther teaches privately and in group settings in Philadelphia, including the Wharton School, Moss Rehab, Healing Arts Studio, and Penn Nursing.

At our request, Esther is offering a trial class free of charge for anyone interested in trying yoga. This will be a chair-to-mat gentle yoga class, ideal for beginners and anyone with health concerns seeking safe stretches, release in the joints, and strength in the bones.


The trial event will be held at the First Unitarian Church on 2125 Chestnut (entrance on Van Pelt Street). This location is handicapped accessible. If you are interested in participating in this trial yoga class or want to learn more about yoga classes please contact us by calling the office at 215-925-7333 or by email at RSVP by March 25th in order to save your spot.
