To Do: Yoga in the Garden

Free lunchtime yoga sessions at 20th and Market

Put your lunch break to good use this month with the Yoga in the Garden series at 20th and Market. The Independence Blue Cross-sponsored events, which will be held on the last three Mondays in August, will include a half hour of yoga instruction and a nutrition presentation.

The free sessions start at 12:30 and take place in Center City’s new pop-up garden—pretty  much the perfect setting for an outdoor yoga class. The class will incorporate standing yoga poses and breathing techniques, so you don’t have to lug a mat to the office. Participants are asked to wear yoga-appropriate clothes and shoes. Recipe cards will be handed out following the nutrition presentation, and you can enter a raffle to for a chance to win prizes. How’s that for time well-spent?

Free, August 15, 22, and 29 at the PHS Pop-Up Garden, 20th and Market sts., 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
