Davis’ Central Park will be the setting for a special yoga class Sunday as part of Yoga Across America. The practice — led by teachers from FIT House, Akasha Yoga and Kaya Yoga — will consist of 108 sun salutations, and last approximately two hours.

The free class, in its second year in Davis, builds community and supports a national movement to share yoga with underserved communities, according to Wendi McCaskill of FIT House, coordinator of the Davis event. All donations will go to the nonprofit organization Yoga Across America, which reaches out to communities that might not have access to yoga.

Cities across the country will host similar classes that weekend — in parks and yoga studios — collecting donations to provide free yoga and wellness programs for veterans, cancer survivors, low-income families, homeless shelters, nursing home residents, high school students and children with special needs.

McCaskill invites community members to bring their mat and be part of something powerful.
