Le yoga en français – Sunday 4/15 at 3 pm!

Le Yoga en Français with Galen Tromble and Anna Gilcher

Join French teacher Anna Gilcher, PhD (annagilcher.com), and yoga teacher Galen Tromble in a fun, all-levels bilingual yoga class. You’ll learn the language of yoga in French as body and mind are engaged in the movements of yoga, from “lever les bras au-dessus de la tête” (lift the arms above the head) to “la posture de l’enfant” (child’s pose). The only prerequisite is a spirit of “joie de vivre!” All levels welcome – in both yoga and French. In Silver Spring.

Date, Time and Location

Sun Apr 15 2018, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Willow Street Yoga, 8561 Fenton St., Silver Spring, MD 20910
