Free Yoga Available During Health Fair by Memorial Behavioral Health


A free outdoor event encouraging community health and wellness will be held in Duncan Park in early August. 

The event will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 7, in Duncan Park, Madison and Mason streets, Springfield. Memorial Behavioral Health and the Springfield Park District are sponsoring the health and wellness fair.

A free yoga session taught by a certified instructor will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The session is designed for adults, but the instructor can accommodate children.

No prior experience with yoga is necessary to attend. Participants should bring their own yoga mat or towel or blanket to put between themselves and the ground. Bottled water will be available. Preregistration is not required. Event organizers ask that participants in the yoga session wear masks.

In addition, information booths will distribute “freebies” along with information about health and wellness.
