The Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce that Siloam Springs residents will have the opportunity to learn the basics of yoga starting in April during an eight-week beginner course with instructor Brittany Acklin.

“The Parks and Recreation team is happy to announce this yoga series,” said Charli Crandell, Recreation Coordinator. “This class will be a beginner level series that has the potential to make a big impact on the Siloam Springs community. Hopefully, when weather permits this program will be able to breathe life into our parks with some outdoor activities. For now, bring yourself and participate in this program, all are welcome.”

Siloam Springs native, Acklin is a 200-hour yoga instructor. She received her certification in 2022 from Trailside Yoga in Fayetteville. She said she is honored to be teaching in her hometown and is passionate about offering a safe place for everyone to connect through yoga.

 “Siloam Springs is such a beautiful city with a lot to offer, including this free yoga series,” Acklin said. “I truly believe that yoga is for everybody, and it is so incredibly healing to the mind, body and spirit. Whether you've never attended a yoga class before or if you consider yourself a seasoned yogi, this series is for you. We will practice beginner-friendly vinyasa flows and use our breath as an anchor to fully arrive in the present moment, calm the mind and to feel peace from within.”

Yoga classes will begin April 3 and run through May 22 at 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the Parks and Recreation Building, 401 W. University, Siloam Springs. Yoga mats will be provided on a first come, first serve basis, and it is recommended to bring a water bottle to class.

“My goal is to introduce yoga to the community so that we all may take the principles of yoga off the mat to fully embrace what life has to offer,” Acklin said. “I look forward to seeing you and connecting with others in the community through yoga.”
