yogaAnother growing season begins. Green sprouts begin their ascent towards the sun. Seeds are sown. Earth is tilled and moved. The spring season is symbolic of renewal, growth and vitality. The plant life awakens around Denver Botanic Gardens, and an urban oasis is formed. For decades, the Denver Botanic Gardens has provided us with a wonderful sanctuary of color and life. It has become a place to reflect and a place to reconnect. 

Denver Botanic Gardens is a perfect place to practice yoga. Take an important moment out of your day and return to simplicity, to move the body and to breathe with intention. Renewal, growth and vitality for body, mind and soul. Join me this spring and summer for an hour long yoga class amidst the beauty and serenity of the Gardens at both dawn and dusk. The opportunity to practice in such a beautiful setting is quite a gift. 


Find your inner bliss and join us at the Gardens this coming season with Sunrise Vinyasa Yoga in the Gardens every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 8 a.m. and Evening Yoga every Wednesday evening at 6 p.m.

Blake BurgerGUEST BLOGGER: Blake Burger
Blake attended his first Vinyasa yoga class back in July of 2005. Immediately, he became attached to the beautiful movement, the challenge of the postures, and the sense of peace and calm that was cultivated by the end of each yoga class. Practicing Vinyasa yoga on a daily basis has improved his strength, posture, flexibility, and endurance. Beyond the physical benefits, yoga brings a sense of clarity to challenging situations in life, reminds him to stay present and focused in an ever-changing environment, and to find happiness and contentment in his surroundings. Blake has a degree in Food Science and Nutrition, and is currently employed as a horticulturist at the Gardens. Outside of yoga, his passions include backpacking, hiking, cooking, live music, reading, and spending time with family and friends.



Yoga At The Gardens This Year?

Only two months ago I was only 30 minutes away from the botanic gardens practicing yoga on my inflatable stand-up paddleboard on the Cherry Creek Reservoir with my friend when he came to visit. I'll have to check if you're doing this again this year and I will most definitely pop down for a visit!

Yoga at the Gardens

Hi Matt,

We do have these yoga classes:

Enjoy one or all of them!

Perfect, thanks for the links Doris. I'll check them out. Are you planning any yoga classes on stand up or paddleboards in the near future? That would be an awesome addition!

Yoga on paddleboards

Hi Matt,

Since we don't have a body of water onsite where people can practice yoga on paddleboards, I doubt that would be something we could offer at York Street or Chatfield Farms. In the meantime, please enjoy yoga on land at the Gardens!
