Gentle Flow Yoga with Farra  

LaGrange County Public Library
Mondays & Thursdays

10 a.m.  - 11-ish
The first session is free!  For each further session, a $5 donation is suggested.
Please bring a yoga mat if you have one.  If you don’t have a yoga mat, feel free to bring a blanket or towel instead.
Wear stretchy, comfortable clothes.

If the main library doors are locked when you arrive, please enter through the east patio door, directly into the Community Room.

Gentle flow yoga combines gentle stretching and strengthening movements. It is slow in pace and gentle in practice, with poses that flow gently from one into another. Awareness of the breath helps to calm the mind and allows you to move deeper into each pose, focusing on alignment, balance, and flexibility.

Yoga is union, so please feel free to come unite with Farra, who has been practicing yoga  for over 30 years, and has been a teacher of yoga since 2018. Come experience the joys of building a strong mind, body, and spirit through the practice of a gentle, free-spirited, loving yoga.

Due Date Stitch Club

Shipshewana Branch Library
Meets every three weeks, beginning, Thursday, October 28
4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Learn a new knit and/or crochet stitch at every meeting, or just bring a project you’re working on and chat with other knitters and crocheters while you stitch.  

We’ll meet every three weeks.  Library books are checked out for three weeks at a time, so just remember that the Stitch Club meets the same day your books are due!  

Bring your own yarn and materials.  

Participants must know how to knit and/or crochet--but you don’t have to be an expert!

  • Knitters need to know how to knit and purl.
  • Crocheters need to know the single and double crochet stitches.

If you’re out of practice, this is a great way to get started again!
