Candyce Columbus, instructor

Improve flexibility, balance and strength in the open air surrounded by the beauty of nature in the Arboretum. Certified yoga instructor Candyce Columbus will take students on a 10-15 minute warm up stroll through the garden prior to an hour-long rejuvenating traditional Indian Hatha yoga class. Each session will include asanas (yoga poses), pranayama (breathing exercises), vinaysa (yoga flow series), mudras (yoga in the hands), meditation (guided) and relaxation. Students should bring a substantial yoga mat and blanket or towel for extra-padding as needed. Yoga practice has been an integral part of Candyce’s life and well-being for more than 16 years. Since 2009 she has been sharing the knowledge passed on to her from many wonderful teachers. Regardless of fitness or flexibility she believes everyone can benefit from yoga. Her classes are well-balanced, varied, informative and enjoyable. She is dedicated to her students and to helping them lead active, healthy lives.
