Enhance Your Well-Being With Yoga Classes at Griffith Park

(LA Trend) — Improve your health, boost your well-being, and keep yourself strong and flexible with this Vinyasa-style yoga class in the beautiful surroundings of Griffith Park while listening to some great tunes.

Even if you’re new to yoga, you’ll be in good hands; this class will be led by Gene Leonard, a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and 250 Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher. Originally from Chicago, Gene became Certified in both Personal Training and Yoga back in 2015 and is the founder and owner of Unstoppable Greatness. He’s also an FNS Fitness Nutrition Specialist and a Sound Bath Healer.

Participants only need to bring a mat and some water and be ready to work. For those who don’t have their own mats, Gene brings two extra mats with him to every class, so feel free to text his cell at (630) 441-3349 to request to borrow one. However, yoga mats aren’t required to participate, as doing yoga on the grass is totally allowed. It is very beneficial for our bodies to be grounded into the earth, as it reduces inflammation in our bodies. In fact, Gene often does yoga barefoot in the grass.

All of these classes are donation-based to make them as free and available to as many people as possible. For those interested in giving back, you can donate money to him on Venmo @geneleonard or you can bring cash in-person to the class. After you’ve experienced one of his classes, please feel free to give whatever you think it was worth. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
