Remember the yoga class Emile Sorger taught at the Horticulture Center back in November? Well, if you were bummed you missed it, good news: Sorger and the Fairmount Park Conservancy have teamed up to host another three yoga classes at the Horticulture Center throughout the winter months, with the first happening on January 17th. Meaning: Come January, when it seems everything in Philly has died and all that survived is concrete and a very lively population of Arctic Splash litter, you’ll be able to get your downward dog on surrounded by oh-so-green tropical — and living! — plants. You can’t see me, but I’m crying tears of joy right now.

The dates for the BYO-mat all-levels classes, each held on a Sunday at 1 p.m., are January 17th, February 14th and March 13th. Each class has a theme, so the January class is all about beating the winter blues with a sequence that will build internal heat and rev your immune system up; the February class, on Valentine’s Day, is all about loving yourself and loving nature; and the theme for March’s class is still in the works.

The classes are $10 each, or free for Fairmount Park Conservancy members. You can learn more and reserve your tree-lined spot here.
