Outdoor yoga takes over Golden’s Spirit Square

More than 25 participants, as well as the sunshine, came out to Spirit Square for the first outdoor yoga session of the summer.

More than 25 participants, as well as the sunshine, came out to Spirit Square for the first outdoor yoga session of the summer. Dalia Yanai of Golden Lotus Ayurveda is hosting nine weeks of outdoor yoga in Spirit Square in support of the Golden Women’s Resource Centre.

“We did outdoor yoga a few years ago at the Clown Park. But I can’t say the turnout was quite this good,” said Yanai, looking out at the crowd filling out the tent in the square on Sunday July 7.

This time around she chose a different location.

“I love the Spirit Square. It’s beautiful and central,” she said. It also has a tent to help with unfavourable weather, and a much easier surface to work with.

The sessions will run until the end of summer, with the last one occurring on the last Sunday of August. It is drop in every week by donation to the women’s centre. Yanai was given a permit from the Town free of charge because she is not charging a rate.

“We’re just doing simple yoga here,” said Yanai. “There’s so many different people, you never know who’s going to show up. So we’re keeping it pretty easy, something to suit everybody.”

Yoga sessions are every Sunday from 11 a.m. to noon, you just have to bring your own mat.
