Yoga in the Gardens!

Sponsored by: The New Haven Land Trust

The Land Trust is hosting weekly yoga sessions in our community gardens! Sessions will meet in different Land Trust gardens throughout the city for a citywide yogic experience. Yoga sessions are open to the public and donation-based. If you feel you’ve benefited from the experience, and can afford to donate, please do so. Nobody will be turned away for lack of funds.

You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat or rent one from us for $2 (or just go natural on the earth!). The session will be led by instructor Damian Paglia (bio below.)

The upcoming sessions will be held at the following locations:
May 31 || Cherry Ann St Park - 173 Cherry Ann St.
June 7 || Cherry Ann St Park - 173 Cherry Ann St.
June 14 || Truman St. Garden - 60 Truman St.
June 21 || Truman St. Garden - 60 Truman St.
All classes run from 6-7pm.
