Whenever spring decides to show its face, boy-OH-boy will we be excited for all of the fun outdoor yoga around the city. Moving yoga from the studio to outdoors means we get to explore all kinds of fun places via our yoga mats — whether that be doing downward dogs on the Bok Bar rooftop or doing them on the lawn of Pennsbury Manor

The Manor — which, ICYMI, is a pretty authentic reconstruction of William Penn’s home along the Delaware — sits on a whopping 43 acres of land, which means there’s plenty of room for you to sprawl out in the sunshine.

Starting on Saturday, May 12, Pennsbury Manor will welcome yogis of all levels for two pop-up sessions. From 10 to 11 a.m., a session of Shake Your Soul will be take over the Pennsbury lawn. This unique practice combines yoga with movement therapy by incorporating elements of Qi Gong and dance.

Following this session will be “Shake Your Seat Yoga” from 12 to 1 p.m. This class is done entirely in a chair, making it a perfect, low-impact option for seniors.

Each session of you will run you $10, and you can register for them here. These sessions will reoccur the second Saturday of every month from May through November. The Pennsbury Mansion is located at 400 Pennsbury Memorial Road in Morrisville.
