Robert D. Ray Asian Gardens - May 1

Rain or shine Guerilla Yoga begins 5:30pm this Thursday, May 1 at Robert D. Ray Asian Gardens (700 Robert D Ray Rd Des Moines).  Situated on the east bank of the Des Moines River south of the Botanical Center, across the river from the Iowa Events Center, the Gardens supply a natural linkage between the Principal Center Street Pedestrian Bridge and the Des Moines Botanical Center.

The Robert D. Ray Asian Gardens features an Asian pavilion atop an undulating bridge spanning a pond that cascades into the Des Moines River with a series of waterfalls. Accented by stone pagodas, lanterns and sculptural rock formations, the Asian garden's flowing lyrical ambiance will transport us to a picturesque Far Eastern paradise.

There is on street parking without meters available on the West side of the street nearest the pagoda.  With a 30% chance of rain and high of 51, I suggest you dress in layers and trust that we'll be warmed by breath and movement.  The rain won't stop us either as the pagoda will serve as our shelter.  You may want to bring a towel for underneath your mat.

I'll be wearing a golden scarf.  Call or text 515-979-6474 if you can't find me.

Guerilla Yoga... unconventionally fun.
