I’m a pro at stretching and relaxing, but even if you’re not, you can be a part of the Newtown Yoga Festival. The all-day yoga extravaganza takes place this Saturday, August 23, from 9 am to 4 pm, at NYA. A “Yoga Buffet” served up by local yoga instructors provides the chance to try out several yoga practices in approximately 20-minute segments during the morning. Then, in the afternoon, join internationally and nationally recognized yoga teachers Ray Crist, Tiffany Maloney, and Jennifer Reis for some really special sessions.
