Calling all local yogis! Belmar Recreation has teamed up with the Belmar Public Library to offer FREE yoga classes for residents of Belmar and Lake Como, New Jersey, beginning September 5, 2023. (Non-residents pay just $5.00 per class.)
Belmar yoga glasses are held at Taylor Pavilion, 500 Ocean Avenue, every Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Belmar Recreation yoga series is led by instructor extraordinaire Brenda Yarnold, who previously owned Bella Buddha Yoga Studio at 921 Main Street in Belmar. Yarnold has been teaching yoga for more than 12 years and is also a certified chair yoga instructor.
Chair yoga is a gentle low-impact activity for older adults who wish to integrate more movement into their lifestyle in order to keep their body mobile and flexible as they age. Belmar Recreation offers chair yoga from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. every Thursday, right before the all-levels mat yoga class.
