Yoga at the River’s Edge

Saturday mornings at various beautiful locations on the rivers with the South Shore’s finest yoga instructors

Yoga is a delightful way to begin a summer day! It can help reduce stress, increase muscle tone, improve flexibility, and much more. Classes incorporate meditation, gentle stretching, breathing techniques, hatha yoga postures, and guided relaxation, and take place at various scenic outdoor sites along the North and South Rivers. To date, close to 1,000 people have participated in the Yoga at the River’s Edge program. We hope you’ll try a class with us this summer.

Yoga at the River’s Edge 

 

KeziaCouch11

Now in its 20th season, Yoga at the River’s Edge was founded in 1997 by Kezia Bacon, a yoga teacher who wanted to combine her enthusiasm for yoga with her love of the North & South Rivers. Kezia hoped participants would gain increased awareness and appreciation both of their inner selves and of the rivers, marshes, and streams of the North and South Rivers Watershed.
