Everyone, from doctors to green-juice-guzzling housewives, agrees that yoga has undisputed physical and mental health benefits. In fact, yoga might be the answer to all of your stress-related woes. Add South Florida’s gorgeous weather to the mix, and it’s literally a breath of fresh air. Take Hatha Yoga at Miami Beach Botanical Garden, and channel your inner Buddha amid the lush foliage.
The all-ages class combines strengthening, stretching, and relaxation on the terrace. Instructor Terra-Nova begins the class with a mini-meditation and offers new themes each week, many of which revolve around our relationship to nature.
Mats are first-come, first-served, so maybe bring your own. All donations given at the class support the garden; suggested donations are $5 for garden members and $10 for nonmembers. The class begins at 12:30 p.m. every Wednesday at Miami Beach Botanical Garden (2000 Convention Center Dr., Miami Beach). Visit mbgarden.org or call 305-673-7256.
