Yoga – for a good cause

Many classes at Shepherdstown’s Jala Yoga scheduled for the week of Dec. 10 will be available by donation, with all proceeds going toward holiday help for a struggling local family.

The yoga studio is located at Mellow Moods Cafe and Juice Bar at 117 W. German St.

Another Jala Yoga deal coming up: Morning classes scheduled between Dec. 26 and Jan. 1 are free. “Our gift to the community!” says Kitty Clark.
