What surprises me, in my 16th year of a yoga practice, my third year as a yoga teacher, is why more people don’t practice yoga in the outdoors during warm weather months.
Outdoor yoga is exhilarating, preforming healthful poses in fresh air with the sky as the ceiling, and the sounds and sights of nature – bird song, trees, flowers – stimulating the senses.
If you haven’t tried outdoor yoga and would like to, I’ll be leading an outdoor yoga class along with Robin Kirsche on Sunday, June 25, at 9 a.m., sponsored by the Farmington Land Trust. Location is a beautiful land trust grassy, shaded property across the street from Farmington Bank on Main Street, close to Farmington Avenue. Farmington Bank has graciously agreed to allow yoga attendees to park in its lot. The event is free and open to the public, a Sunday morning celebration of summer. Robin, I might mention, is a very popular yoga instructor in the Hartford area, with 30 years of teaching experience and a graceful style suitable for all levels of yoga experience.
If you are thinking of attending, you might send me an e-mail or text. It is not required, but will help us get an idea of how many people will come. Bring a yoga mat or a couple of beach towels. Beginners are welcome.
