Tuesday Yoga in the Garden
Tuesdays, March
19 & 26, 2019 • 1:00pm–1:50pm
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR

Rejuvenate and restore your mind and body with a gentle weekly yoga session surrounded by nature. Instructors Jill Russell and Kelly Carsley will lead you through routines that will optimize your overall well-being through breath awareness, improved joint mobility and increased strength and flexibility. All levels are welcome and supported. Studies show that simply looking at trees and the color green can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and improve your mood. That makes the Garden's Manor House Fireplace Room, with its wooden floors and beautiful views of the surrounding forest, an ideal place to take a mid-day break that is just for you. Register in advance or just drop in.

Ages 18 and over. Meets weekly in the Manor House Fireplace Room starting February 5, 2019. $12/session or $10 for Leach Garden Friend. To register in advance, please go to and click on "Learn". Drop-ins welcome. Leach Botanical Garden, 6704 SE 122nd Avenue, Portland, OR 97236. 503-823-1671.
