Yoga With Trees

The community yoga class at the South Carolina Botanical Garden is a breath-led movement class, and all bodies and fitness levels are welcome. As TKV Desikachar said, "Anybody can breathe; therefore, anybody can practice yoga."

Join Melissa Powell, RYT 200, at the SC Botanical Garden Amphitheater for a 75-minute yoga class that will incorporate trees into the practice. Similar to using a wall in an indoor class, the trees will help us access some challenging poses as well as provide support during more restorative and relaxing poses. They will inspire us with their steadiness and strength. The class will focus on breath-led movement. Beginners are welcome! This class is weather-permitting and will be canceled in the event of inclement weather.

A yoga mat and towel to place under the mat are recommended; although, a few mats are available to borrow. All other props, including blocks, blankets and yoga straps, are provided. Class is held outside as weather permits. Please dress accordingly in clothing that allows freedom of movement.

When: Sunday nights

Where: Classes take place at the top of the South Carolina Botanical Garden's amphitheater.

Cost: Pay-what-you-can. Payment can be made at class time or any time that the Fran Hanson Visitor's Center is open.

Register: Pre-registration is required. Please visit or email to register.
