Get your Om on

YogaInTheParkStarting this weekend head to the southeast shore of Gray’s Lake to de-stress from the week for free with Yoga in the Park!

Wellness is one of Des Moines University’s five core values, and reflects our commitment to the well-being of the mind, body and spirit. What better way to “be well” than by practicing yoga next to the water’s edge?

The class will be from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and will be held every Saturday running through September 29.

Local volunteer teachers lead each session, which means you’ll have a different yoga experience each week. You are encouraged to bring a mat or a towel as well as some water and clothes you can move in. No registration for the class is required.
