Yoga instructor brings enthusiasm to sessions

Our yoga class has been running for three years, and Diana Baird has volunteered her time without fail.

In Diana’s words, “I’ve been exercising in various forms, but not very strenuously, most of my adult life. In Bakersfield California where we lived for many years before moving here, I spent time doing aerobics. When yoga was finally offered, I was enamored with it. I’ve practiced under several instructors and have attended workshops, each presenting varying viewpoints. When the previous instructor here moved away, with trepidation I took up the reins. Every Tuesday, I am inspired by my fellow 13 practitioners. Please join us!”
