NEW Yoga Offerings at the Library Arts Center

with Brianna Renner – RYT-500, YACEP

The Library Arts Center is pleased to offer classes with instructor Brianna Renner, RYT-500, YACEP, formerly of Namaste Newport/Buttonwood Yoga in Newport.    Initially, classes will be offered on an ongoing basis, and drop-ins are welcome. 

While pre-registration is not currently required, it is most certainly appreciated to allow us to plan for classes in this new season.

Based on participation, the Arts Center may need to change the class structure of classes going forward in order to keep classes sustainable for the Arts Center and instructors.

We recommend that participants bring their own yoga mats, and any other needed equipment.   There are a limited number of mats and blocks available for use from the former Buttonwood Yoga Studio that may also be used free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.

Liability Waiver: 

All participants will be asked to sign a release of liability at least once annually to be able to participate in yoga at the Library Arts Center.

Classes will take place in the Library Arts Center gallery unless the nature of the current exhibit on display (sculpture, craft exhibit, etc.) makes it impossible to do so.  During these seasons, class will take place at our 15 Main Street Location in Downtown Newport next to Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.
