Yoga in the Gardens
"Back to Basics—Vinyasa Flow"
Cecily Smith, Yogi
- Monday, September 18, 2017 – 6:30 pm–7:45 pm
- Monday, September 25, 2017 – 6:30 pm–7:45 pm
In this class, we will take it back to the fundamental postures and principles that go into a yoga practice. If you are new to yoga but wanting to try, this is the perfect class for you. If you've been to a class before, but found yourself totally lost with all the animal poses and spiritual stuff, this is the perfect class for you as well. We will explore basic poses in a fun way, flowing and moving to the rhythm of our own breath. We will learn some interesting anatomy facts and how to modify poses in a safe way that is suitable for your body and maybe even some Sanskrit along the way!

Notes about Each Class
We will meet at the Bobby G. Wilder Visitor Center and then walk to the location for practice as a group. There are so many beautiful spaces to explore, so we will try to change it up. If you are late, no worries! You are still more than welcome to join us—there will be a sign at the Visitor Center that will have our location for that specific day!
Classes will run about 75 minutes. Please try to arrive on site at least 10 minutes before the start time to account for time needed to park and walk to the Visitor Center.
Please remember to bring a mat and/or towel and water! There are water fountains at the Visitor Center but we will be practicing deep inside the Arboretum, so it's best to bring a bottle of some sort to fill up before we relocate location. If you do not own a yoga mat, a towel or sheet can be used instead, since most of the time we will be in practicing in a grassy area.
