People think of the library as a place to enrich their minds, but what about their bodies? OPL has fitness classes for people of all ages, interests and experience levels throughout the city. From Tai Chi to Zumba, and yoga to meditation, OPL is helping to move Omaha and Douglas County residents on a path toward more active lifestyles!
The free classes offer an alternative to the gym and are convenient for regular library users.
Kathy Campagna takes the yoga class at Millard Branch. “I like taking yoga at the library because I can combine my weekly library visit with a healthy habit of stretching, exercise, relaxation and fun with friendly people,” said Campagna.
The class instructor, Radha Golla, wanted to share the benefits of practicing yoga with others. “Teaching yoga at the library has opened up new things in my life. Every person brings their own perspective to yoga practice, which has enriched my teaching methodology,” she said. “It helps in the overall well-being of the community.”
