For Immediate Release

Yoga on the Trail Saturday, Sept. 8

Join Ozark Greenways for the 4th annual "Yoga on the Trail" on the old iron bridge over the James River on the Galloway Creek Greenway, Saturday, Sept. 8, 9-10:30 a.m. Yoga takes place right on the trail's historic bridge, with a bird's-eye view of the beautiful James River flowing below.

Taught by Abbe Ehlers and Sally Larson (RYT-500 certified), this class welcomes everyone from beginners to advanced yoga students. Kids 10 and younger are welcome with an adult. Bring your own yoga mat.

Parking is limited, so bicycling or carpooling is encouraged. Parking is available just south of the bridge, accessible from Blackhawk Road (Farm Road 181). Overflow parking is available at the Missouri Department of Conservation's Southwood Access boat ramp, accessible off Timberline Road (Farm Road 177). A shuttle will be available from Southwood Access 15 minutes before and after the class; otherwise walktime is about 10 minutes.

Cost is a suggested $15 donation to Ozark Greenways. Event sponsors The Bodysmith, Dynamic Body and Larson Law Firm will match donations made at this event. Rain date will be the following morning, with the same details.

Participants are invited to attend the free Outdoor Days outdoor fitness festival at Lake Springfield after yoga.
