Description: Join us for another season of Yoga in the Park! We invite you to embrace this unique opportunity to build community and foster your relationship with nature. Every week you will be guided through a 60-minute invigorating vinyasa yoga practice amidst the gentle trees and blooming flowers of High Park. Each practice will end with a short guided meditation in savasana (a restorative pose) that will invite you to tune into your senses and appreciate the nature all around you. Class will close with a short gratitude circle so you can get your day started on the right foot!
Kindly note: This is a pre-registered 8-week program, not a drop-in class.
Indoor/outdoor policy: Our practice will take place outdoors, on the south lawn of the Nature Centre, except in inclement weather (please review our inclement weather policy below). If we do have to move inside, there is ample space to place mats at least 2 meters apart. The interior of the Nature Centre is beautiful and spacious, with large windows (that can be opened to let in fresh air) that overlook the forest. If practice moves indoors due to inclement weather, the instructor and participants will be required to wear a non-medical mask.
Bring Your Own Mat: We require you to bring your own mat (and other props if you wish) to each session. We will not be able to loan out mats this season.
No previous yoga experience necessary.
