Bays Mountain Park hosting Winter Solstice Yoga & Meditation Class

Bays Mountain Park is partnering with a local yoga instructor to offer residents a special winter solstice yoga and meditation program inside the planetarium theater.

The event will take place from 1 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. on January 27 in the planetarium theater at Bays Mountain Park.

This 40-minute immersive yoga and meditation program will simulate a day’s journey from dawn to dusk within the planetarium, while participants do standing yoga poses. Students will be encouraged to work briefly (15 to 20 minutes) on their strength, flexibility and balance.

The remaining 20 minutes of the program will involve light stretching and guided meditation, while the planetarium transitions from twilight to night. This class is designed for people with lower mobility or those who simply enjoy more restful and reflective opportunities.

The cost is $10 per person and class size is limited to 20 people. Wear exercise clothing and bring water with a sealable lid. No mat is required.
