Yoga on Cider Hill - June 2, 1-2 PM
Come enjoy yoga on the farm. Walk or take a tractor ride up to the top of the hill and practice yoga with an inspiring view overlooking the Hartford valley. This class is a flowing yoga practice to move energy throughout your body and deepen your breath allowing a state of relaxation and peace. Class starts with centering and breath work to help bring the mind to rest and prepare the body for yoga postures. We will stretch and then move into a light flow practice to open the body. After flowing, there will be a Yin relaxation sequence to find the physical stillness, which allows the body and mind to soften. All levels and bodies are welcome. No previous experience or flexibility required! Come as you are!
