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.
