De-Stress and Be Inspired in Nature
Sunset Yoga – Saturdays at St. Michaels Farm Preserve in Hopewell
A collaboration between D&R Greenway and Fyrefly Yoga
Overlooking the nearby Sourland Mountains – we’ll hear the serenade of crickets and birds with the setting sun.
Gaze at green hilltops and the lush beauty of our setting sun at St. Michaels Farm Preserve in Hopewell for a mindful de-stressing with a stretch-full yoga practice & meditation. Led by rotating Fyrefly Instructors, we will Center the Mind and Body after the week’s happenings.
