This five-day event is for NIH employees but also open to the public—and free! Participants will learn about the benefits of yoga and also have a chance to take classes. Teachers who will be at the event include Alan Finger, John Schumacher, and Judith Lyon. For more info, visit http://does.ors.od.nih.gov/fitness/yogaWeek.htm.
