Trail Yoga 10/22/2022

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday October 22

9:30 AM  –  11:00 AM

Preregistration required. A program geared for adults and children ages 13 and up with an adult.

Connect to nature in a deeper way through the mindful movement and meditative practices found in yoga. During this on-the-trail experience, participants might draw upon the stability of trees for balancing postures or extend into a turtle pose by the pond. Become part of nature by meditating in a creek, hugging trees, and breathing in the life force around you. All levels are welcome. 

About the guide:

Diane Utaski uses her years of experience as a certified Kripalu Yoga instructor to guide others through a gentle yoga experience that brings in elements of nature. As the founder of the first Cincinnati yoga studio, Cincinnati Yoga School and Bookstore, Diane has led many yoga classes and developed her style that focuses on the gentle stretches and mindful movement to help soothe stress. 

What to expect: No prior yoga experience is necessary to enjoy this class. The instructor’s goal is to make yoga accessible for everyone using props and variations, as needed. Trails and distances will vary between classes, and we may encounter steps. Intensity is easy to moderate.

Minimum age for children attending with an adult: Children of any age are more than welcome with the understanding that it is an ADULT yoga class, so children under 13 years of age may not be able to do everything or stay interested in the class. Adults will have to decide how much management of their children they are interested in doing. 

How to dress: Participants should dress in layered, loose, comfortable, athletic clothing. Hiking shoes or gym shoes are recommended.

What to bring: Guests should bring water if the day is hot, and a hiking stick if you have one for fun poses (we will also have plenty of sticks to borrow or find in the forest to use for this purpose as well). A yoga mat is NOT needed. 

This program meets at the Groesbeck parking lot map kiosk (near the Groesbeck Greenhouse) on the Rowe Woods property.

Members $9; nonmembers $19 (includes daily admission).
