Remember - even if you think you can't do yoga, you can. It's never about the full pose, just about the breath and a stretch! Dress in comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat or towel. There will be a few mats available.

Does that sound like you? Well pop on by to learn some American Sign Language Basics and some information about Deaf Culture in the first part of our World Languages Series. In any position where you will work with people (nursing, automotive, food service, business, etc.) you will meet a Deaf person and knowing the basics in their language and about their culture will really put you a step ahead!
