As the ever-bustling holiday season approaches, the weather grows cooler, and the sun sets quicker, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. Make your Monday mornings a little brighter with the Yoga at the Gardens: Ashtanga Series. Hosted by instructor Jason Kirby, the series focuses on Ashtanga Yoga, where poses are given in a specific order, and the focus is on breathing and movement. The poses are designed to heat the body and encourage sweating as well.
Dates and Time
The Yoga classes are every Monday morning from 8:30 to 9:30 at the Botanical Gardens. The class is scheduled to run through Monday, December 30. The classes cost $5 for members of the Botanical Gardens and $7 for non-members.

Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional yoga practice where a set of poses are given to yogis in a certain order, with the goal of joining breath and movement. The Ashtanga style of yoga features a heating breath, and actively moves through the given poses to warm the body and encourage sweating. The class starts with Sun Salutations (A & B), moves into several standing poses, and finishes with a few basic seated postures. The class will end with the savasana posture (corpse pose), and modifications for each pose are given.
