Low-Impact Laughter Yoga - Great for people with mobility challenges with Mike "Mr. Mirth" Bork
This Laughter Yoga Class is nearly identical to the Community Class, with one major difference: This is a lower impact, seated program, which is easier on the body for seniors and others with mobility or flexibility difficulties. While lower impact, this class will still include the same type of laughter exercises and deep breathing. This class is hugely popular in Fairbanks, where the residents at Raven Landing Senior Center have been laughing for a year. While this class is lower impact, it is still perfect for all ages and abilities and is a great class to share with friends. Laughter is great medicine, no doubt, but it is also a great social activity! Make new friends! Laughter Yoga will leave you energized, happier, less stressed, and breathing better than you have before! Free and open to the public.

Rise & Shine Yoga with Tara McMurray
Waking bodies tend to be stiff, swollen and rigid. Whether you’re a climber, groupie, new or practicing yogi, we all need movement to free our bodies from stale and stagnant energy. Stand tall and greet the adventures ahead by pairing dynamic poses and sun salutations with longer and steadier holds. You’ll focus on upper and lower body mobility while awakening the power of the core. Free with Festival Pass.
Yin-Yang Yoga with Michelle Worby
A quieter practice consisting of poses being held for 3-5 minutes. Focus is on the opening of connective tissue of the eight key joints, thus rejuvenating and distributing Chi (energy) throughout the body. Most of yin and yang is done seated or laying down on the yoga mat. Free with Festival Pass.
