“Yoga at Cheekwood is a welcome reprieve from the stresses of the pandemic. There is plenty of space to spread out under the trees with 6′ or more distance between each person. The setting is beautiful, the grass is soft, and the instruction is gentle and encouraging. It’s a great addition to the day!” — Jo Anne R.
“I truly cannot say enough good things about the yoga program. The instructors from Small World Yoga are fantastic and make a beginner like me feel comfortable and properly instructed while offering more challenging options for the more experienced in the group. There is nothing better than being about to practice yoga in the beautiful, calming environment that Cheekwood offers.” — Bonnie O.
