Tampa, FL – The Franciscan Center is proud to announce its new partnership with Tampa’s Kodawari Studios. Beginning in January, yoga classes, led by professional staff of Kodawari, will be offered twice a week at the Franciscan Center.
Restorative Yoga will be held on Sunday mornings, starting Jan. 12, from 11 a.m. to noon. Restorative Yoga is relaxing and healing. Its calming movements and poses are strain-free and painless.
On Wednesday evenings, 6 to 7 p.m., beginning Jan. 15, Vinyassa Flow Yoga will be offered. This style of yoga combines breath and yoga postures in a continuous flow of movement designed to balance the mind and body.
Kodawari Studios owner, Annette Scott relates, “The practice of yoga empowers individuals to progress toward improved mental, emotional and physical health and wellbeing. It is a scientific system of self-investigation, self-transformation, and self-realization that uses breath-work, movement and moments in contemplative stillness to illuminate the living being.”
Franciscan Center CEO Wendy Leigh is enthusiastic about the partnership. “Yoga is a perfect addition to everything the Franciscan Center already offers. Kodawari brings us high quality classes, teachers and techniques. I practice yoga and find it integral to my wellbeing: body, mind and spirit. It’s a natural!”
In addition to weekly classes, a quarterly Full Moon Yoga evening is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 8, 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. in the Franciscan Center’s riverside pavilion. For further information, contact Kodawari Studios: 813-999-1874 or KodawariYoga.com
A special introductory offer is available for first-time participants in the Sunday/Wednesday classes: a $10 BOGO – just $5 per class. The regular class fee is $15 per class; passes are offered at five classes for $60 or 10 classes for $110.
