Beginning Sunday, Oct. 5 and running for eight consecutive weeks, Paula Barnes brings back the very popular Coredio class to Jala’s Charles Town studio at 307 West Washington Street.

On Sunday, Oct. 12, from 2-4 p.m., instructor Ruth Campbell leads a Mala-Making Workshop at Jala’s Shepherdstown studio.

On Sunday, Oct. 26 from 2-4 p.m., instructor Turi Nevin-Turkel leads an Introduction to Yin Yoga workshop at the Winchester studio at Creekside Station, 3119 Valley Avenue.
