Symposia Community Events – October 2011

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing”. (Hellen Keller)
Free Yoga Classes at Symposia Bookstore – Oct. 4, 11, 18 at 7 pm.
Have you always shied away from Yoga because you thought you weren’t very flexible?
Symposia is now opening its doors to a totally new environment for yoga practice: small classes, taught in a supportive, non-competitive manner, with lots of individual attention.  Students will be gently guided through basic yoga postures, yogic breathing, and relaxation techniques.
