Yoga for Gardeners

Gardening is heaven for the soul but can wreak havoc on the body. By becoming more flexible, strong, relaxed, and aware of body mechanics and ergonomics it is possible to maintain your passion while minimizing your chance of injury. Participants will learn and practice basic yoga moves to incorporate into their gardening ritual including warm ups, stretch breaks, and cool downs, all in the broader context of the yoga philosophical tenets of nonviolence, truth, and moderation. No yoga experience required but yogis welcome as there will lessons for everyone. Wear comfortable nonrestrictive clothing you can move in and supportive footwear. Bring a yoga exercise mat if you have one.

Simple snacks and hot and cold drinks provided. Please bring your own if you have dietary restrictions.
