New opportunities with yoga

February 05, 2014

Clarkston Hot Yoga, 5678 Sashabaw Road, hosts the New Pathways program, Tuesdays at 1 p.m., starting Feb. 11.

"I just can't wait to get this program running," said Susan Stencil, owner of Clarkston Hot Yoga. "This is my chance to give back to our community, it's so nice to be able to offer the healing power of yoga to people that need it the most."

New Pathways is an introductory Yoga program developed for individuals with disabilities by Clarkston Hot Yoga, Strive Inc., and Independence Township Parks and Recreation.

"We encourage anyone with a disability to contact us about participation," said Strive staff member Drew Burns. "While spots are limited, we are able to adapt the program to any disability level."

"We are grateful to the Brooksie Way Foundation for giving us the opportunity to offer a yoga program geared toward individuals with disabilities," said Strive Recreational Therapy Service President Stella A. Husch. "Recreation and leisure are key components to not only rehabilitation but also wellness. Both should be treated with importance."

The Brooksie Way Foundation awarded a $1,000 grant to start the program, which is open to anyone with a disability, as well as family members and aides. For more information, call Strive 248-922-1236 or Independence Township Parks and Recreation at 248-625-8223.
