What better way to spend Sunday mornings along the Sound Shore this summer. . . .

Rye Town Park is offering free yoga classes from a professional instructor from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. every weekend, starting on June 3.

Yoga sessions will be offered at 5 Dearborn Ave. in the City of Rye on the lawn near the Gazebo and "Cope" Sculpture Exhibit.

While the yoga is free, donations are welcome, according to park spokesman Bill Lawyer.

Yoga instructor Dhokela "Kela" Yzeiraj is skilled at guiding beginners as well as longtime enthusiasts.

Yzeiraj invites people of all ages and backgrounds to balance their weekend with morning classes guaranteed to deliver physical and spiritual reprieves from summer stress. She incorporates meditation along with gentle and grounding yoga postures.

Participants should bring their own mats or practice directly on the grass.

This is a donation-based class, with no required fees. Participants will be required to sign “hold harmless” forms. People can sign up at the Rye Town Park website by clicking here or show up the morning of class. Class will be cancelled in case of rain.

Yzeiraj is certified as a RYT-200 HR in Raja Yoga with Yoga Alliance and has been practicing for eight years. She also is trained in the ancient Indian medicine of Ayurveda, “The Knowledge of Life,” and incorporates it as Yoga’s sister science in her teachings. She enjoys sharing this timeless wisdom in daily living through food, bodywork and gardening in community.
