Yoga Dimensions will host a special yoga workshop on Sunday, March 24, from 1 to 3 pm, to benefit the Women’s Center in Danbury. The Heart Opener Workshop will be led by yoga teacher Kristi Gunnershaug, with studio space provided by Lynda Weber, owner of Yoga Dimensions, at 87 South Main Street in Newtown.
The Heart Opener Workshop is a two-hour Vinyasa-style class designed to open one's heart physically and emotionally with faith and trust. The suggested class donation is $40. All proceeds will go to the Women’s Center.
Each year the Women’s Center serves more than 26,000 adults and children from area communities, including Newtown, with free and confidential services that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Services and programs include emergency shelter and support services for victims of domestic and sexual violence; counseling and advocacy services; crisis intervention including 24-hour hotlines, onsite emergency response at area hospitals, police departments, and at court; and community education and primary prevention programs throughout the community including school systems, area businesses, social, and civic groups.
