A Guide to Community Events in Madison County!

Here are some of the MARCUMsold Team's favorite things to do in-and-around Madison County, KY!

What: Fall Back Into Yoga

Where: Irvine McDowell Park - 345 Lancaster Ave, Richmond

When: September 4, 11, 18, 25 & Oct 2

Details: Yoga in the Park is coming back this Fall! Starting Wednesday, September 4th we will be offering one class a week (Wednseday) at Irvine-McDowell at 6:30pm. Classes will run from 9/4 to 10/2. The classes will be led by Kelly Liddell.

Each class will focus on 3 objectives: to relax and to get grounded; to exercise and build strength; to stretch and improve flexibility. These goals are met through proper bodily alignment and by connecting the movement of the body with the natural flow of the breath.

The template for each class will involve the following elements:

    A seated or reclined breathing and mindfulness practice
    Warm up, seated or reclined stretches and core and spine strengthening
    Traditional Vinyasa-style flow (moving through a series of beginner/intermediate poses in slow to moderately paced and mindful way)
    Balance work (beginner level)
    Cooling stretches, either seated or reclined
    A final moment to restore and rest that ends the class where it began.

Each class will also have a different focus from the preceding and succeeding one to give a feel of growth and variety. So each class you sign up for will be a totally different experience as previous.
