Set aside an hour for yourself. Leave your phone behind. Bring your mat — and perhaps a loved one — and make your way into the garden for yoga, meditation, and breathing. Soak up the healing powers of nature and movement as you walk back into your day feeling energized and reset, ready to be your best self. Spend time exploring the gardens after class and enjoy the exquisite gifts of the Landcraft Garden Foundation. Teacher Jess Cross has deep roots on the North Fork.
