Poetry & Yoga with Cara McNamara & Ann Quinn  

Sunday, March 18th from 7:00-8:30 pm;  $25.00

Join beloved yoga teacher, Cara McNamara and long-time devotee, Ann Quinn to launch Ann’s first book of poetry.  “Quinn’s poems deftly navigate the ‘essential in between’ moments: the rich silences between words, a child’s slow shift into hard, adult truths, the ever-unknowable passage from life into death.  At the same time, her work celebrates the sensuous world with joy and curiosity.”  This evening’s contemplative practice will combine healing postures with inspiring words.  Student’s of every level, including beginners are welcome and tuition includes a copy of the book.  Please register in advance to secure a spot and your copy of the book.  The session will be followed by cookies, tea, and a book signing!
