Yoga with the Flamingos Everglades Wonder Gardens
January 17, 2020 @ 8:00 am
An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Friday, repeating until January 27, 2020
Everglades Wonder Gardens is now offering Yoga with the Flamingos classes Mondays and Wednesdays at 8 a.m. Attendees can perfect their eagle and heron poses in the Wonder Gardens’ tranquil setting, overlooking a flamboyance of flamingos.
Led by Susanna Lovett and Mary Cline, certified yoga instructors, acupressure practitioners, and licensed massage therapists, the 45-minute meditative yoga sessions will be held on the Everglades Wonder Gardens’ organic Zoysia grass lawn located next to the Flamingo Lagoon. Following each class, community tea will be offered in the newly opened Robert & Karin Moe Tea House.
“‘Yoga with the Flamingos’ is a rare opportunity to ‘experience the wonder’ before we open for the day to the general public,” said Thomas Hecker, president and CEO of Everglades Wonder Gardens. “Peafowl and other beautiful birds wander about and are always engaging with the yoga students, making for an immersive meditative class.”
The cost is $10 for Everglades Wonder Gardens members and $12 for nonmembers. Class attendees should bring their own mat. Space is limited, so those interested are encouraged to register early.
