New Year New You: Opportunities in St. Johns from Art to Yoga

Have goals for the new year? “New year new you,” can be a motivational phrase, but staying on track when working alone is hard. It becomes easier when we join with other like-minded folks. In St. Johns we have many opportunities to join with friends and neighbors to achieve our goals and encourage each other.

Take advantage of these or other opportunities. It is one of the best things about living in St. Johns, a small town in a big city.

It will also introduce you to basic yoga positions and make you more comfortable walking into most yoga classes.
