Sunday Serenity Yoga

Posted on: August 27th, 2017 by Marketing Development No Comments

Local yoga instructors Alia Peera and Amy Mitchell host our 3rd annual summer yoga series in the East Park at Dumbarton House. The East Park provides a serene, tree covered outdoor space, for this 60 minute all-levels vinyasa flow class that should be fun and challenging for both experienced yogis and yoga skeptics alike! Attendees should bring their own mat and must complete a waiver to participate.

A $5 cash donation per person is suggested for the class. Please give donations directly to the instructor. Reservations are not required but are encouraged. Donations to Dumbarton House for providing space are welcomed, donate online or in the museum after the class.

Class will be canceled if rain is forecasted at or after 8:00 am the morning of class. Rain cancellations can be confirmed on the instructors and Dumbarton House’s Twitter @Path2Be @ProYogaUSA @DumbartonHouse
