Join Avid Bookshop and M3Yoga for a special therapeutic yoga + meditation class in memory of the late Mary Oliver. This event takes place on Saturday, February 23 at 2pm at the historic Fire Hall No. 2 (489 Prince Ave, directly next door to Avid Bookshop on Prince), headquarters of the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation. Tickets can be bought on this webpage or at either Avid Bookshop (while supplies last). 

The teacher for this class, Chase White, likes to incorporate poems and quotes from literature into his yoga teaching. In this special, one-time session, Chase will use one or more of Mary Oliver's poems to guide us through a gentle, meditative practice. The goal is to help you feel more relaxed and centered and in tune with Mary Oliver's words. 

All you need to bring is yourself, wearing comfortable clothes. M3 will provide mats for those who don't have their own; if you are unable or uninterested in getting onto the floor for the course, no worries: we have cushioned chairs available for those who want to do chair yoga. Chase will provide instruction appropriate for all levels and experience. Newbies are encouraged to join.

100% of the proceeds from class ticket sales will go Project Safe, by way of Avid Bookshop owner Janet Geddis's Janet Geddis & Mike Fulford: Dancing With the Athens Stars 2019 Team #1 fundraising efforts for Dancing With the Athens Stars (DWAS) 2019. DWAS is an annual event in Athens, Georgia that helps bring attention to and raise money for Project Safe, an amazing nonprofit that helps end domestic violence.

Copies of Mary Oliver's work will be for sale, and we will be giving away a Mary Oliver book to one lucky, randomly-chosen person who registers for the class. (Prize winner announced after the 75-minutes class concludes.)

Buy a pass for this class at either Avid Bookshop or on our site with this link. The confirmation email you receive for this order (or your receipt from an in-store purchase) is what you'll need to show at the door to gain entry to the class.
