County: Library Announces New Yoga Book Club And Yoga Supply Kits


Do you want to learn more about yoga or share your practice with  like-minded people? The staff at Mesa Public Library is pleased to announce a new and exciting  Quarterly Yoga Book Club to be facilitated by certificated yoga therapist Jacci Gruninger, MS,  C-IAYT. This series is free to the public thanks to the generous support of Friends of Los Alamos  County Libraries, and the first session will be held Thursday, Nov. 3rd on Mesa Public Library’s  lower level from 5:30 to 8pm. The program is suitable for adults of all ages and abilities.  

Participants can expect to spend up to 45 minutes breathing, moving, and being still, and will  then have the opportunity to engage in discussion about the book Yoga and the Path of the  Urban Mystic by Darren Main. A limited number of copies are available for check out from  either library ahead of the program; however, it is not necessary to have read the text in order to  participate. Simply attending the program and learning about the concepts through discussion  will help yogis deepen their practice and decide if they’d like to read the book later. 

Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic teaches readers to apply the ancient wisdom of India to  every aspect of life. From work and relationships to death and dying—allowing even our busiest  days to become powerful and mystical adventures. This is not a book about perfecting yoga  asanas or pranayama breathing techniques. It is a book about changing the way we see the  world—transforming every experience and relationship into a yoga practice unto itself. 

To support this program and patron learning, the library has put a limited number of yoga supply  kits into circulation. Each kit includes a yoga mat, two blocks, and one 8-foot strap packed into a  mesh bag for convenient transport. The check-out period is four weeks, but the kits are eligible  for up to three auto-renewals if no holds have been placed. for Patrons are not required to attend  library programs in order to check the kits out.  

Space is limited for the Quarterly Yoga Book Club and registration is required. Please visit the  event calendar at or call (505) 662-8257 for more information.
