We offer an expansive lineup of quality classes and activities (known here at MDPC as REACH Classes) which develop knowledge and skills for children, youth, and adults. There are three sessions offered each year – Fall, Spring, and Summer. The community is welcome to participate; you don't have to be an MDPC member!

Notes: A Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher can guide students of all ages and physical conditions to an experience of yoga, which is safe, accessible and rewarding. This class is designed for beginner and continuing adults as well as expectant mothers with healthy pregnancies. 
The use of props such as chairs, blocks, blankets, or straps may be incorporated to help students adjust or support themselves in the different postures and thereby achieve a range of motion that is effective and safe.  Students will practice seated, twisting, standing, and some inverted postures to reduce stress, create strength and flexibility, and correct structural imbalances caused by poor posture, sports training, and daily activities.
