Sarah Stevenson, the Tini Yogini, is hosting a free yoga event Jan. 2 to put the focus of 2010 on health.
“I would really like to get the community focused on health and wellness,” Stevenson said.
Yoga lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, loosens muscles and helps people deal with depression and anxiety, she said.
Yoga isn’t just people standing on their heads, and the hour-long class will be for anyone at any level, she said. The event starts at 9 a.m. at the outdoor amphitheater next to the Huntington Beach Pier. After the class, there will be an optional two-hour beach clean-up.
The event is free, and participants need to bring a towel or mat. Stevenson recommends wearing comfortable sports attire. Go to www.thetiniyogini.com.
