From the Fitness Provider: "

Yoga at the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum is back for summer 2018. Join us in June and July for a series of early morning yoga classes among the nation's most beloved bonsai collection. Between work, classes, families, and social schedules, we often forget how therapeutic it is to spend time in nature. Unwind with an all-level yoga class with certified instructor and artist Kate MacDonnell.

In Kate’s class, you will work towards calming the mind through various practices including movement, postures, breathing exercises, meditation and exploration of yoga philosophy. You will strengthen your awareness and challenge yourself to find the right balance of ease and effort for yourself. Modifications and alternate poses are offered to accommodate all students.

After the class, take some time to appreciate and learn about the bonsai and penjing on display in the Museum. The yoga class will last one hour. The Museum is located inside the U.S. National Arboretum. Please enter through the gates at the R Street entrance off of Bladensburg Road, where free parking is available. We ask that you arrive at the entrance gate to the Bonsai Museum at 8:15, where your instructor will escort you into the Museum. The Museum remains closed while the class takes place and will not open to the public until 10:00.

Tickets are $15, and $10 for email subscribers. Sign up for our newsletter here and you'll receive a discount code following sign up. Already a subscriber? Check our latest e-newsletter for the code. Purchase a pass to all four classes for $50, or $32 with code. Please bring your own mat.
