"I feel like the practice of yoga is the practice of returning home. Many of our students are in Irondequoit, so being right here at I-Square is perfect in the heart of Irondequoit," NOW: Yoga & Movement’s Erin Wafer said.
On Tuesday mornings and Friday nights, a group of about a dozen yogis guided by NOW: Yoga & Movement instructors roll out the yoga mats for poses, flow, and stretches at I-Square.
"I am so happy to be outside. We began our outdoor yoga class by finding an area in our environment that was pleasing and soothing and I just saw so many smiles beaming with joy to have this beautiful sky in our sun and the breeze," Wafer said.
It’s a good fit for I-Square that was built on the mission of making its Bakers Park development a community space.
"We are open from 11:30 in the morning all the way until 9 at night, so it doesn’t matter if you want breakfast or dessert at nighttime for ice cream, it is a great time for people to get together and enjoy the outdoors and the summertime," Wafer added.
