Free Yoga Class to Help Get Ready for Old Frisco Trail Run
Kelly Falkner has organized a sunrise yoga event to help get participants of the Old Frisco Trail Run ready to run. According to Falkner, “It's a free community class at the outdoor theater. I think, especially during this time, everyone needs a healthy and safe way to relieve stress and take care of themselves. I hope to share this with those who need that outlet, or just want to try something new!”
Sunrise Yoga with Kelly Falkner will be an outdoor community event open to all ages and experience levels. Beginners are welcome. Come out and incorporate some movement, stretching, breathing and self-care into your weekend. Bring your mat, blanket, or towel and take 45 minutes to get energized and revitalized.
The event will be held at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Center Outdoor Theater September 26, 2020, at 7:00 am.
About the instructor:
Kelly began practicing yoga online at the suggestion of a friend, fell in love with it, and has maintained a dedicated home practice for years. In January of 2020, she decided to pursue a 200-hour RYT certification at Trailside Yoga and Beyond in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and came away from the experience with an enthusiastic determination to share “the big yoga” with others.
Kelly has been a teacher since 2002, first as an English teacher in the public school system, and now as an EAST facilitator at Kiamichi Tech in Poteau. Her philosophy of teaching has always been focused on student growth, empowerment, and self-reflection. Her goals in the classroom have been to inspire positive change and to create a space where students feel supported and respected. Her approach remains the same in her work as a yoga instructor.
“Yoga has changed my life in such a positive way, and I want to share that experience. My intention is to teach and practice with mindfulness, humor and empathy, while creating an accessible, judgment-free space for exploration.” - Kelly
