DANBURY, Conn. -- In celebration of the first day of summer, Yoga Culture is offering Summer Solstice Yoga from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 20, at Danbury's Tarrywile Park and Mansion.
"Welcome the longest day of the year with yoga at Tarrywile!" Yoga Culture said on its Facebook page. The weather should be perfect for the outdoor exercise/relaxation course. A high temperature of 76 degrees under sunny skies is forecast by the National Weather Service.
At last year's event, 73 yogis took part in the exercise in the open air. (See the video above.) The event is free.
Yoga Culture also offers free outdoor yoga classes every Sunday at 11 a.m. at Tarrywile Park.
Yoga Culture hosts the classes at the Red Barn on the Tarrywile property. The sessions last one hour and are led by a professional. Bring your own mat and towel.
