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!

Christmas at Blithewold
Day of the dormant
(Oct 31, '14)
This has maybe been the prettiest fall week ever and we have spent it celebrating the gardens’ downward spiral into dormancy — as well as its eventual rebirth. You know we have a schedule to keep before allowing the volunteers to take a well-deserved winter rest, so even though we still haven’t had a frost, we forked the […]

I’d prefer to think that the season is in transition rather than ending but when we start throwing some of summer’s best blooms into the bed of Blithewold’s truck, it definitely feels more like a goodbye than a see-you-later. This week, once again, the rain and a woolly nor’easter held off just long enough for […]
