Join certified teacher Rajwant Kaur Khalsa as we learn this physical and mental discipline on Thursday, January 31 at 5:00 PM. Registration is required. Adults and teens (age 14 and up) welcome. Come with an empty stomach, a full water bottle and a yoga mat or beach towel for your comfort. Rajwant also suggests bringing a throw or sweater to toss over your shoulders as you cool down.

You will work up a great appetite and afterward we have the perfect answer. The Sikh members of the Gurdwara Sahib Singh Sabha at 3310 Canton Center Road have invited us to go to a delicious meal known as Langar. Langar is defined as a common kitchen where food is served to all visitors without distinction of background. It is generously served for free.
