Library to offer free yoga class

JAMESTOWN – The Prendergast Library in Jamestown will offer Introduction to Yoga at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Fireplace Room.

Local instructor Valerie DiCarlo will lead the class. Participants are asked to bring a beach towel, blanket or yoga mat and wear comfortable clothes.

The activity is free, and no registration is required.

“If you’re still stressed from the holidays, this is your chance to try yoga,” according to Library Director Tina Scott.

DiCarlo taught yoga, creative dance and dance for fitness in the Buffalo area for several years and has continued to teach since she moved to Chautauqua County.

Her classes are offered at the YWCA of Jamestown for all levels of experience, at the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena, and at Jamestown Community College through the Continuing Education Department.

She has also provided numerous yoga series and workshops for local groups, including some for individuals with disabilities.
