Yoga at Raleigh City Farm

Sky above, earth below, connection within.

Yoga at Raleigh City Farm is a way to reconnect to community and yourself. Through a guided practice on the farm space, you will be surrounded by life all around you: greenhouses, field crops, butterflies, birds, and the sound of downtown Raleigh. There is no better place to remember that just as you are moving through life, life is also moving through you.

A portion of the proceeds from each class are given back to the non-profit to further their mission.

What you Can Expect from Yoga at the Farm:

What you can expect from Saturday morning practice on the farm is breath led movement. The goal of our hour together outside is not workout or fitness based. It is about cultivating a relationship with your breath, your body, the earth, and the community of people that gather.

The sweetness is in discovering how strong you are, and what you are capable of by way of breath rather than by forcing, pushing, or exerting (it’s Saturday, after all!) You can expect to move in a way that is sustainable for your body and your breath – that awakens and enlivens both – and that nourishes the part of you that is tied to the earth and to community. Expect the sounds of a city waking up around you, gentle breeze across your skin, big sky above you and steady earth below you. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll leave feeling like you worked a muscle you didn’t know you had ☺

Weather/Cancellations:

A good rule to go by is that if the ground is wet, or is forecasted to surely be wet, we are not having class.

We will post on Yoga at Raleigh City Farm Facebook Group as soon as possible, ideally by Friday late afternoon! Please join the group to stay up to date. If a cancellation is made before Saturday morning an email will be sent to our contact list! If Saturday morning is an unexpected washout, or even steady rain, there is no class, and pre-registration participants will be contacted.

Check social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) if you are unsure, and for last minute updates! But wet conditions, sky or ground = no yoga. The same goes for extreme temperatures (heat advisories or below 60 degrees).

Guidelines:

  • Please do not bring children under the age of 12 unless you have contacted Katie first with information re: their yoga/some class experience, demeanor, etc.
  • As you may know, parking is in high demand in the Person Street neighborhood. We encourage you to take an eco-friendly approach when navigating to the Farm. If you must drive, consider carpooling. Please refrain from parking in the Person Street Plaza lot since neighboring businesses rely on these spaces for their customers. Street parking is available along Blount, Franklin & Person Streets (note posted parking restrictions). During the weekend, there is overflow parking available along Delway Street (west of the Farm – part of Peace University and only permitted on weekdays).
  • Please bring your own mat, water bottle, and any other props you feel are necessary to your practice (towel, blocks, strap, etc).
  • Please alert Katie if this is your first Yoga class!
  • Please wear sunscreen and/or bug spray if you are sensitive to these things. Class is outdoors. Take care of you!
  • If you or someone you know cannot afford the ticket price of Yoga on the farm, please contact Katie.  There are a limited amount of trade opportunities available for volunteer work on the farm in exchange for yoga classes. 

 

See you on the farm!
