Belvedere Square is about to get a new spot for yoga from a familiar fitness name.
Deb Tillett, President and Executive Director of ETC, began working out with Fit For You in July 2006.
We’ll admit, when we first saw that Everyman Theatre was offering a yoga and storytelling series, we immediately got excited, thinking it was for adults. After all, we love yoga— and how fit, relaxed, and overall healthy it makes us. But we’re also big fans of storytelling– which is enjoying a renaissance thanks to phenomena like The Moth and The Stoop. So, needless to say we were a tad bit disappointed to realize that the only ones eligible for this fab-sounding series are 4-8 year olds. Sometimes it seems like they get to have all the fun.
