Give Yourself and Someone You Love the Gift of Yoga from Village Yoga

Village Yoga

As the holidays approach, consider giving your loved ones the gift of yoga. Kripalu Yoga is a gentle, yet deep, meditative practice. Rather than tying the body in knots, it’s about untying the knots, releasing tension, opening the body, mind and heart, and nurturing the spirit. Dynamic Chair Yoga has been a tremendous success and service to people with limited mobility who know the importance of keeping the body moving.

A Framed and Personalized Gift Certificate from Village Yoga makes the perfect give for the Yogi in your life. Purchase a gift certificate for the full 12-session series for $200, half series (six sessions) for $100, or a "Taste of Yoga" (three sessions) for $50. Recipients may choose from four weekly Yoga on the Mat and Dynamic Chair Yoga classes.
The New Year 12-week sessions of Village Yoga's Kripalu Yoga on the Mat and Dynamic Chair Yoga for Health & Wellness will begin on Thursday, January 4th. All classes meet in the Parish Hall of Christ Church, 64 South Country Rd., Bellport. Click here for more information.

It's Time to Subscribe for 2018!


For 14 years now, we’ve put a lot of time and effort into keeping you informed. There’s hardly a major event, and most of the minor ones too, in the South Country area that we don’t cover for you. Even our paid advertising, which helps pay the bills, keeps you informed as to what our local shops, restaurants, and businesses are up to.

We know how much our readers look forward to our emailing to the community every Tuesday morning. It’s a quick way for you to make sure you don’t miss a significant event in the coming week, but did you notice that we’ve also started to publish the Village’s Legal Notices? You no longer have to wade through page after page of incy, wincy, tiny type trying to figure out if any of it pertains to you. We even include mention of new Legal Notices in our weekly emailing so that you won’t miss them.

The bottom line is, we need your support if we’re to continue publishing We’d like you to subscribe for just 10 cents a day, that’s only $36.50 for the entire year, 2018, to help keep going. If you can afford $50 or $100 for the year, that’s great, but if you can only afford $25, that’s fine too. As a “Thank You,” if you do subscribe for $36.50 or more for the year, you’ll receive FREE Classified Ad Services for the year, including photos. If you place just one Classified Ad during the year, this service alone will pay for your subscription!
