Unwind with Yoga, Meditation, and More During Self-Care Saturdays at the Los Angeles Zoo
If you love going to the Zoo and practicing yoga/meditation, well guess what? Now you get to do both at the same time with Self-Care Saturdays at the Los Angeles Zoo! Offered on a monthly basis, this special program offers the opportunity to unwind and relax with the Zoo and its residents—rediscover your inner peace with this special series of meditation yoga, and art workshops. Each 90-minute class is guided by a certified instructor using the Zoo as an ashram, inspiration, and artistic backdrop.
“Self-Care Saturdays is about connections,” says Anna Becker, M.A., Curator of Education. “It's about connecting to self, community, nature, and of course, the Zoo. The Los Angeles Zoo is a place where our community can seek a variety of experiences such as exploring nature, animal adventures, and spending time with family and friends. Self-Care Saturdays goes even deeper than that. This program is about providing an opportunity for our new and returning guests to experience the Zoo through yoga and meditation. We are able to share the nature space that exists here from the morning sunrise over the Elephants of Cambodia to the serenades of the Siamangs. The Zoo is a special place in Los Angeles, and we want our community to have a chance to experience that in deep and meaningful ways.”
The next Self-Care Saturday will take place on February 16, 2019. Future dates include March 16, April 20, and May 18. Classes are held from 9 -10:30 a.m., and are for ages 14 and up. The cost for Zoo members is $15; non-members is $36. To purchase tickets, click here.
