Yoga On The Farm: 5 Class Series Exploring the Elements @ Red Fire Farm
Aug 21 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

You are invited to come practice yoga at the farm in Granby with Susan Moore on the third Wednesday of the month, June through October (6/19, 7/17, 8/21, 9/18, 10/16) . The five-class series costs $45 (due at the first session on June 19th) or $10 for a single-session drop-in rate.

Please plan to arrive on the farm with enough time to check in with your yoga mat in hand. Sunscreen and bug spray is strongly recommend because weather permitting these classes with take place outside. Participants will receive a 15% coupon to use at our Granby Farm Store the day of the class.

Here’s a note from Susan about this exciting new series:

“I am really excited to practice at the farm, and will be taking inspiration from the 5 elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space) as I guide our practice. Classes are all level, no experience (or flexibility) necessary, just a willingness to be and breathe! Bring a mat if you have one, I have a few to share. If the weather is good we will practice outside, so a hat, sunscreen, and bug spray may also be good to have.

Our first class takes inspiration from the element of Earth. The earth is our mother, and all things material spring from her. We will take time to deeply connect with the feeling of earth underneath us, as support and grounding. We will also bring awareness to Earth inside us, the strength and stability of our bones, cultivating a sense of being ‘at home’ in our bodies.”
