Winter Wellness with Stenton -- Yoga​

Wishing everyone wellness in 2021! Looking for some opportunities for movement indoors this winter? Zoom in for Virtual Yoga at Stenton.

We hope you will join us for one or all of these 1-hour classes! Zoom Chat will be available before and after the session to connect with others and for Questions & Answers.
