Whether you’re looking at getting into meditation, zen and other means of relaxation or just relieve a little stress, yoga at Market 1023 is the place for you.

Market 1023 is a little shop located in the heart of Downtown Bryan that specializes in home decor, homemade goods, and vintage finds. Fortunately for you, they will be hosting their first yoga class…inside of the store. Julie Kircher, the instructor for class, is currently pursuing a Ph.D. from Texas A&M University, and has been practicing yoga since 2014.

“I was prompted to get into yoga for fitness and health reasons,” Kircher said.

The owners of Market 1023 wanted to find a fun and creative way to build community around the Bryan/College Station area, and, since Kircher was already frequently collaborating with their business, it was practically a perfect match.

The class is a beginner’s yoga class meant for anyone to join, whether you have years of experience or none at all. The class will focus on slower, sustainable movements, learning basic poses that can be done at home, and adjusting the poses to fit the body. There will also be muscle stretching and some all over body relaxation to get the year started off right. Kircher intends for the class to give participants some ideas on how to practice on their own.

“Yoga is for everybody, and anyone can benefit from it,” Kircher said.

Kircher believes that yoga is beneficial to everyone, whether you need to strengthen and stretch out muscles or find a routine that gets you moving a bit each day. Calming the mind and moving the body have shown to aid in relaxation and stress relief, in addition to improving flexibility and toning muscles.

The class will be held on January 25, 2018 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, and space is very limited. You can sign up on their website, www.market1023.com, or in person at the store.
