What up Doe!
Make space to de-stress and feel good this year with yoga! If you’ve been coming to Palmer Park on Saturdays, try adding another community class to your schedule this year.

I’m writing to you on the first day of the year, to encourage you to meet your 2020 yoga goals by letting you know:

Yoganic Flow teachers will be sharing the practice of yoga in two neighborhood parks on basketball courts revitalized & managed by the Detroit Pistons!

Detroiter Kerrie Trahan began practicing yoga over 12 years ago, when she first participated in a class at the Boll Family YMCA, but it wasn’t until she moved to South Korea that yoga began to wind its way into her life in a much deeper way.
After discovering the practice helped her overcome depression and grief, she began working toward becoming a registered yoga teacher. That study has taken her to Thailand and India, where she amassed enough knowledge to earn a RYT-300 certificate. She brought that knowledge home to Detroit and began sharing it with her family and friends. Out of that was born Yoganic Flow, a community-based yet transient organization that holds pop up classes around the city.
