A new four-part outdoor yoga series kicks off on Friday evening at Kahn Park. The one-hour sessions, running this week and next and resuming September 11th and 18th, will be taught by yoga instructor Christina Dollings.

Attendees are asked to bring their own mats and table settings, as well as potluck eats, of course. The event is also BYOB. Suggested donation is $5 to $15. RSVP here.

4. Free Movement Assessments at War Horse Barbell Club

Last month, we told you about the new strength-training gym, War Horse Barbell Club. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, plan to make a pitstop this weekend for a free 15-minute movement assessment. Strength and fitness trainer Henry Halse will be on site to assess movements, posture and gait and offer tips for how to get more out of your training and prevent injuries.
