Yoga Days at Blithewold: Tuesday and Thursday
Blithewold and Bristol Yoga Studio invite you to enjoy a connection to nature, through our beautiful landscape, and the peacefulness of Yoga outdoors. The Yoga asana (postures) offered is appropriate for all experience levels— from newcomers who can’t touch their toes to those seeking to continue their practice while basking in a breathtaking new atmosphere. The instructors will introduce students to a variety of Hatha Yoga styles using warm, welcoming, and sometimes comical approach. Classes are held in Blithewold’s "Nut Grove," a mostly shaded and somewhat secluded spot overlooking the Great Lawn and Narragansett Bay. Each class includes different yoga poses, attention to alignment, breath-work, and flow. The class finishes with building core strength and relaxation. You are left feeling your best! We encourage you to bring a picnic lunch and then take a refreshing walk through the grounds after class as a guest of Blithewold.
To register call 401-253-2707 x 21 or drop-in and pay at the Visitor's Center at least 15 minutes prior to class. We accept cash, check or Visa/MasterCard. *Purchase a one month unlimited pre-paid pass and save!
Drop-in Session: $10 Member, $15 Non-member
Pre-paid 1-month unlimited pass: $60 Member, $100 Non-member

Prune it up
(Jul 01, '15)
I am really excited to introduce my fellow horticulturist, Betsy Ekholm to the blogosphere. Betsy started working with Gail and me in 2013 as our gardens intern and we couldn’t let her go. Had to make her an official member of the garden crew — though you wouldn’t be wrong to think after reading this post […]
Transition into summer
(Jun 26, '15)
The to-plant list is getting shorter and we are beginning to transition into a summer-full of deadheading/staking/weeding/enjoying. Right on schedule too: we always aim to be *done by July 4th. (*No garden is ever done.) This week we got the last of the plants out of the greenhouse, tucked in a few final packs of seedlings here and […]
The longest days
