πŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ Yoga (& More) in the Park ~ Summer in Douglas County

Grab your water bottle, sunscreen, and yoga mat or beach towel!

By Kyrie Collins, Macaroni KID Highlands Ranch-Parker-Castle Rock-Lone Tree Publisher May 6, 2022

Local yoga and fitness instructors offer a variety of programs in the park during the summer months. 

It doesn't matter if you think "down dog" is what you say to your family pet when he's begging for treats at the dinner table or if you have mastered the full lotus. Just grab your water bottle, sunscreen, and a yoga mat or beach towel, and head to the one that works in your schedule.

Programs are free unless otherwise noted. Advance registration may be required.

CASTLE ROCK – YOGA IN PHILIP S. MILLER PARK
Practicing outdoors adds a different dimension to one’s yoga practice. Yoga means “union” and when practiced outside, you can experience union with nature, humanity, and the universe. Being outside deepens the yoga experience in many ways and helps focus awareness, breathe deeply and practice stillness.
