The Yoga Loft, of Bethlehem, is hosting a New Year Detox, with Laurel Attanasio, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., January 11. The workshop will include a detox flow that combines breath and movement while moving through a sequence of twisting, standing, forward-bending, back-bending and inverted poses stimulating detoxification through the circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems. The practice will be followed by an informational session focusing on simple, everyday ways to detox through diet, exercise and personal hygiene. Cost is $25 until January 6, then $35.

Mediation for Everyone will be held from 4 to 5:15 p.m., January 12, with Stephanie Tade. Designed for those that have not tried meditation for whatever reason, each session offers practical instruction, a practice session and time for Q&A and discussion of how to develop a personal practice outside the class.

The physical practices of yoga, known as Hatha Yoga, have shown tremendous benefits for people seeking fitness as well as therapy for chronic ailments and injuries. Yoga also promotes the creation of a quiet, reflective space in the mind, mental clarity and an overall a sense of well-being that can help alleviate anxiety, depression and mind-body disorders. The Yoga Loft of Bethlehem offers a free Introduction to Yoga class at 6:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month.

Location: 521 E. 4th St., third fl. For more information, call 610-867-9642.
