BEMIDJI -- The city of Bemidji Parks and Recreation Department will offer three Wednesday evening 'Yoga and Self Care Project' sessions each week from 5 to 7:30 p.m. beginning Feb. 2, at the Carnegie Library, 317 Fourth St. NW.

During the series, participants will enjoy a 45-minute all-levels, flow class with centering, warm-ups, sun salutations, standing poses, gentle backbends, twists, forward folds, warm-down, savasana, pranayama and meditation.

After class each week, participants will make a self-care project that engages a different sensation in the body, the release said.

The schedule is:

  • Week one: Sight through creative expression with a DIY envelope and love letter.
  • Week two: Touch by making a bath bomb with natural oils to nurture skin. Taste with a decadent treat from Chocolates Plus.
  • Week three: Smell by clearing the nasal cavity and deep breathing with a blend of oils participants mix together and take home to alleviate winter dryness.

In addition, every week, participants will learn a mantra to incorporate the sensation of sound.
Participants should bring their own yoga mat. There is a maximum of 10 participants, and the cost for the three-week session is $47.
