AUGUSTA — The Visitors Center at the Viles Arboretum will offer gentle Yoga every Thursday. Classes are suitable for all, including beginners. Mats will be available, or people can bring their own. Drop ins are welcome.

Yoga will be led by Naomi Star Knights in January and Peggy Baird in February.

Knights gained her certification in 2010. She practices and instructs Anusara Yoga, a gentle, fluid Yoga practiced from the heart, creating calmness and reducing stress.

Baird, recently certified in Yoga, is a registered nurse with 35-plus years experience. She practices Hatha Yoga, focused on breath-linked movement to promote relaxation and positive health.

Cost for Arboretum members is $10, fees for nonmembers is $11. Proceeds will benefit the arboretum.
