Yoga Slam in New Haven

NEW HAVEN — There’s not usually much slamming involved in yoga, but local instructor Peg Oliveira is making an exception Thursday. She’s turning her evening class, from 7:45 to 9 p.m., into a fundraiser for the Connecticut National Youth Poetry Slam Team.
Four youngsters from the 6-person team will recite their original poems before, during and after yoga exercises at the class.
“My yoga and their poetry do the same thing,” Oliveira said. “They poke and prod us to look at pieces of ourselves. They’re both examples of how individuals can tap into a universal spirit.”
The class is at Fresh Yoga, 49 Orange St. The suggested donation is $15, which will go toward a trip to the Brave New Voices 2011 Youth Poetry Slam Festival in San Francisco. The event is open to all, Oliveira said, but everyone will be asked to participate in the yoga exercises.
