What’s Good — Eastern Sky Candlelit Yoga

Video and reporting by: Isaiah Showell

BRIDGETON, N.J. — The Hopeloft building hosts weekly yoga sessions at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. The sessions are hosted by instructor Joy Torres.

“I want it to be an escape for them,” Torres said. “I want it to be a healthy restorative escape, so although parts of it may feel like a workout, by the end of it, parts of it feel like a vacation.”

Although the class is, by definition, a yoga class, Torres adds sound therapy to add some form of meditation. During this particular class, Torres’ goal was to embrace the power of sound healing while also promoting a sense of relaxation among the community members who took the class.
