BRIDGETON, N.J. — Namaste, South Jersey. Ahmad Graves-El is the newest member of Eastern Sky Yoga’s team, and he’s hosting a new class that aims to get community members to focus on themselves.

Graves-El’s Yoga Soul Flow class takes place at 6 p.m. every third Friday at the Hopeloft building in downtown Bridgeton. He incorporates singing bowls into his class to bring people’s bodies back in tune.

“What I would hope would resonate with the students is to get in touch with themselves and their spirituality. We get caught up in the everyday rigamarole of life, we always seem to be on the run and on the go,” he said. “My class gives the students the opportunity to check in with themselves, to be able to breathe, and just to be able to connect with their surroundings and mother Earth.”
