Wall Yoga


This class is taught by:

Matt Edwards

I've been hooked since my first class at Grand Valley State almost 6 years ago. Since then, yoga has helped my relationship with myself as well as my community. Each and every time we step onto a yoga mat we can learn something new about ourselves. No effort is lost. I'm honored to be of service at the Yoga Shelter and I look forward to growing better and better together.

Namaste
