Shattering Silence on Capitol Grounds - June 30

This is my all time favorite location for yoga in Des Moines.  Perched on a hill overlooking downtown Des Moines, the Shattering Silence art sculpture is one of the several sights in view from our mat.  The Japanese Bell of Peace and Friendship is also in view.

Let's celebrate peace and friendship with a Holistic Yoga practice at 5:30pm Tuesday, June 30.  Free parking is available in the visitor lot of the Iowa Judicial Building (1111 East Court Avenue Des Moines 50319).  In this map, the parking lot is labeled number 26.  Once parked, you'll walk West past the Judicial building and the bell.

We'll be practicing on a cushion of grass under the blue sky beside the Shattering Silence monument pictured below.  I'll be leading a class that connects us to our inner peace.

Payment of $10 may be made by credit card or cash.  Bring your mat and an open mind.

Grass Hill by Court Avenue Bridge - June 23

View from the Mat
On my evening walks in the city, I'm looking for the next #GuerillaYogaDM view.  I've been wanting to share this one for a while as it is unassummingly beautiful.

Join me 5:30pm tomorrow night (June 22) for a refreshing holistic yoga practice by the Des Moines River.  We'll lay our mats on the lush grass facing the Union Railway Bridge noted below in red.  From this spot, our ears will delight in the sound of the flowing river.      

The Google map below references 100 East Court Avenue Des Moines.  Metered street parking (noted below in yellow) is available on and near the Court Avenue Bridge.  From the East side of the river, you'll walk toward the flood gate across from the Des Moines Police Station at the corner of the Court Avenue Bridge and 1st Street.  I'll leave my phone (515-979-6474) on until 5:25pm should you have any questions or need additional directions.

This #GuerillaYogaDM view is uniquely peaceful.  Combined with our yoga practice it inspires and helps to open our eyes and heart.  The pictures don't begin to give it justice.  Let me share it with you in person this Wednesday, June 10.
