Free yoga classes offered on MDI

BAR HARBOR — Chair Yoga for Every Body, Yoga Dance for Seniors and Yoga for Cancer are being offered on Mount Desert Island through the Graceful Aging program, a new initiative of Healthy Acadia launched in January.

The classes, taught by certified yoga teacher Susan Sassaman, meet weekly in Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor and are free to all (donations are accepted).

All classes are evidence-based, providing the health benefits of yoga: they stimulate the immune system, improve flexibility and strength, reduce anxiety and help to boost overall well-being.

The Graceful Aging program also includes Tai Chi for Health, Fitness for Parkinson’s and meditation classes.
