Bend It Like Miss M.
Crow Collection presents the art of yoga
If you're anything like me, bending it like Sting or Madonna can be a bit intimidating, even though they sing their praises to yoga. But if you want to ease into the contortionist scene, the Crow Collection of Asian Art will offer one-hour beginner classes starting at 5:30 p.m. July 9. Led by Randy Just, a first-level Iyengar-certified instructor, these classes are designed for the novice, introducing the basic poses--or asanas in yoga lingo--while using props to help students of varying abilities. The eight-week series lasts until August 27 and will only set you back $120 or $20 per walk-in. The Crow Collection is located at 2010 Flora St. in downtown's Arts District.
