Yoga in the Park

Phinizy Swamp Nature Park / 1858 Lock & Dam Road / Augusta, GA 30906
Yoga means ‘union,’ and when it’s practiced outdoors it seems like the union with nature, humanity, and the universe is truly felt. Being outside can intensify the yoga experience in many ways – focusing awareness, breathing deeply, practicing stillness. Please meet at The Swamp Shop & Visitor’s Center. This class is for ALL LEVELS, please bring with you your yoga mat & water.
