Bookshop West Portal announces a new series of Sunday Morning Yoga classes with local instructor Linda Wertheim.

A resident of West Portal, Linda has been teaching in the neighborhood since 2000. She was first introduced to yoga in 1968 and has been attending classes for nearly 20 years, with emphasis on Iyengar and Vinyasa flow techniques.

Linda's one-hour session is offered Sundays at 8:30 a.m., before the store opens for business. Spacious and comfortable, Bookshop West Portal offers a relaxing environment for yoga students of all levels. Owner Neal Sofman refers to the ongoing classes as "gentle yoga" because students are encouraged to progress at their own pace and receive instruction based on their individual needs.

Yoga is also offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30 a.m. with Elisa Collins. All yoga classes are $14 per session and drop-in students are welcome.  Students should bring their own mat.

Located at 80 West Portal Avenue, Bookshop West Portal strives to meet the changing needs of the community. In addition to offering shoppers a wide array of books and gifts, Bookshop West Portal presents author readings, writing workshops and ongoing classes in knitting and yoga, as well as Storytime, for children  young and old.
