This is a magical time of year for many reasons (Santa, presents, and the like) but it’s especially magical because the Fairmount Park Conservancy[1] is bringing back their annual plant-filled yoga series[2], which kicks off on Sunday, December 17th, in West Fairmount Park’s Horticulture Center[3].

It’s worth noting that the Horticulture Center is filled to the brim with exotic and tropical plants creating a paradise-like experience, right here in Philadelphia — in winter no less! So, basically, Yoga at the Horticulture Center[4] sounds like the perfect antidote for the winter blues that the bitter cold and increasingly early darkness are causing, don’t you think?

Lauren Daddis, of Northern Liberties’ Dhanya Yoga[5], will be leading most of these indoor yoga sessions taking place in the warm — and slightly steamy — greenhouse. Each 75-minute session will run you $10, or if you’re a member of the Fairmount Park Conservancy (annual memberships start at $35), it’s free.

Be sure to bring your own mat, towels, and water to these all-levels-welcome vinyasa flows to set yourself up comfortably in the Horticulture Center’s oasis. Each class will be held on Sundays at 1 p.m., the dates for the series include: December 17, January 7, January 21, January 28, February 4, and February 11. You can score your tickets here[6].
