We’ll be gathering at the newly opened Yoga House at Rising Fawn Gardens, Georgia. This beautiful 600-acre farm is nestled between the natural boundaries of Lookout Creek and the western slope of Lookout Mountain.
Bring your own yoga mat for this practice and if you have an eye pillow, bring that as well. The Yoga House has large bolsters and blankets.
