NORTH BRANCH - The Somerset County Park Commission Recreation
Department has announced open registration for the winter session of Classic
Hatha Yoga with classes for both beginners and practiced.
The low-impact program will introduce adults to the healthful benefits of Yoga and improve on existing skills for those who previously participated.
The 10-week evening program will be held on Wednesday evenings beginning
Jan. 13 at Park Commission Headquarters at North Branch Park, 355

relaxation techniques, and become comfortable with yoga.
