Join Kate Crouch for a refreshing yoga class sequenced for the body in summer. Late summer is the season of Fire. This practice celebrates Fire’s embodiment of change and need for balancing through cooling. This curated yoga experience correlates with our energetic and physical bodies by acknowledging the effects of seasons internal and external. Kate has selected poses and prose to lead you into deep awareness of the bodiy and bring alignment with the Self. Kate will also lead you through a nature meditation to connect you to your practice space – the Clark Fork River and cottonwood galleries of Kelly Island. MNHC naturalists will further orient you to the riparian landscape by interpreting ecosystem features and identifying the trees, plants, and birds of this special place.

This yoga class is great for any ability level!
