Morning Yoga—Back by popular demand!

So much thought-provoking professional development, so many stimulating events, so much good networking—it’s sometimes hard to remember to breathe at ALA Midwinter Meeting. Attendees can fix that at this year’s conference by joining in ALA’s Think Fit Yoga program before the morning’s meetings and conference rush at 7:00 am on Sunday, January 27.

Certified instructors will guide participants through the 60-minute session that includes strength building, a body-balancing workout and a quick cool down. Registered “yogi’s” will enjoy an event giveaway and energizing snacks after the workout.

To register for Think Fit Yoga, add it to your initial registration under the 'ticketed events' section. Follow this link to access the registration.
