Join us for a peaceful and rejuvenating yoga and meditation class amidst the beautiful surroundings of Hoyt Arboretum.
This outdoor class is a partnership between prAna Portland and Hoyt Arboretum, led by Tessa Tovar. Tessa will guide participants through a series of gentle Yin Yoga postures that will help release tension and increase flexibility in the body. We will hold postures for several minutes each, allowing for a deep stretch and release of connective tissues in the body. Tessa will also guide participants through meditation to connect with the breath and experience a deep sense of relaxation.
- We will meet at the Hoyt Arboretum Visitor Center and begin with a short hike along Spruce Trail to the Wedding Meadow where we will enjoy 60 minutes of Yoga.
- All levels are welcome, including beginners.
- prAna Portland will provide mats and props.
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle.
