    Yoga in Middletown is participating in a day of celebration between Wesleyan University and City of Middletown
    Main Street businesses. I will be on hand to answer questions that students new to yoga, or new to
    Iyengar/Alignment yoga might have. Participants will be able to try some poses based on
    their questions. Studio regulars are welcome to join in and share their own experiences.
    This day will also initiate a sale of used books about yoga, spirituality, Eastern thought,
    the human body and movement. Proceeds will go to ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).
    Unsold books will remain at the studio so students can peruse them at their leisure throughout the fall.
