Participants will be selected in a drawing and announced on Monday, April 18.  All others will go on a waiting list.  Individual entries only (groups must be broken down to individual names and e-mail addresses).  SIGN UP AT janice@wildsouth.org or 256-974-6166.  Please specify morning or afternoon and include your phone number.

Each session will be suitable for all levels of yogic ability and all ages are welcome.

Meet-up times:  8:30 a.m. for morning session, 1:00 for afternoon session.

  • Sheet (twin size flat is good size) or large beach towel for under mat

For each session:

Meet a the Warrior Mountains Trading Company a few minutes before meet-up time.  Park on the south end of the building and come into the store.  We will gather promptly at the meet-up time (8:30 for morning, 1:00 for afternoon) at the Wild South picnic table toward the back of the store.

This event is free of charge, but we gratefully accept donations!  In fact, donations are what make these events possible.  There will be a donation bucket on the picnic table.  Thank you!
