Yogi Margaret Filchak will explain the eight paths of yoga and share asanas or basic poses designed to provide strength and energy.
Filchak, a registered yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance, an international organization of yoga instructors, will talk about the toll stress takes on our bodies and how yoga counters stress.
