Yoga in the Gardens

Mindful Yoga with Delphine Davidson
Sundays from 12:00pm to 1:00pm
April 3 through October 23, 2022
on the Event Lawn at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens

Class has ended for the season, but we look forward to seeing you in April of 2023!

Join certified yoga instructor, Delphine Davidson, for Mindful Yoga encircled by towering cypress and the melodies of nature... birds, bees, and the mighty ocean.

All levels are welcome in this class, which combines Delphine's in-depth knowledge of safe alignment with dynamic movement. Mindful Yoga combines creative sequencing with Delphine's love of classical yoga. You’ll find restorative moments and snapshots of sculpting intensity. This 60-minute class aims to support you in slowing down, tuning into your intuition, cultivating physical health and psychological well-being using postures (asanas) and breathing techniques (pranayama) with the goal of developing a grounded, focused, and peaceful mind.

About the instructor

Delphine has been teaching yoga since 2002 throughout the country. She focuses on the deliberate deconstruction of each pose to make a mindful and lively practice available to students of all levels. You will be invited to go deeper into your individual practice along with consistent gentle reminders to follow the breath and the bodies’ natural flow and the truth of a healing path. In her class, you will find words of encouragement and you will notice her true passion for moving beyond entanglement, obstacles and for finding that delicate balance between effort and effortlessness by listening deeply to one's overarching truth. Delphine’s Yoga isn’t about pushing or striving, it is an experience that encourages the process of empowering individuals by increasing self-awareness and learning how to work within one’s own strengths and limitations.
