FREE Class Saturday 6/6 @ 1 pm
Marta Barnard will be offering a FREE laughter & yoga class.

Laughter and yoga have much in common: they reduce stress, support the immune system, promote relaxation, exercise the diaphragm and abdominal muscles, help control blood pressure, increase lung capacity and detoxify the body. And they are both FUN! Marta will combine laughter and yoga with a movement meditation. The workshop will include asana (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises). Participants will need to be able to get up and down off the floor. Class size is limited to 10. Please reserve your spot .

We invite you to get to know Marta and what she offers at Yoga Okoboji at this FREE event.

Meet New Instructor Jenn Fast!

I came to yoga because of my love of movement and my desire to learn something new. I completed my teacher training at Sun Moon Yoga in 2012 and have been teaching since. Although I came to yoga because of the physical practice, I fell in love with all of the other aspects of yoga. It has truly been a life-changing practice, one for which I am very grateful.
I have a background in fitness, and have been teaching group exercise classes since 2001. I currently enjoy teaching Zumba and strength training classes, in addition to yoga classes. Teaching is in my heart and soul, and I’ve spent 18 years as a public school educator, with 14 years in my current position as a third grade teacher. I am very interested in holistic health, and am currently training in Thai Yoga bodywork. I am also a Level I Holistic Aromatherapist and am pursuing a professional level holistic aromatherapy certification. I look forward to sharing my love of yoga with the Yoga Okoboji community!

Come meet Jenn and experience her classes! Jenn is teaching Monday 10:30 am Gentle Yoga, Tuesday 6 am Hot Yoga and Tuesday 9 am Hot Power Yoga. In July she will be teaching Friday 10:30 Basics and Saturday 7 am Outdoor Yoga as well.
