Practice in the Prairie Free Summer Yoga Series


The Nature Center’s signature summer wellness series is back, and the timing for a little outdoor movement couldn’t be better. Join us every Tuesday in June through September from 6-7 PM for free outdoor yoga and pilates classes at Indian Creek Nature Center. 

Led by some of the area's best teachers, we’ll practice outdoors on the Amazing Space patio and lawn, surrounded by the beauty of the restored natural prairie and woodlands. There’s no need for nature music, as the outdoors provides the soundtrack for this practice; you’ll be serenaded by the geese, frogs, and the breeze.

Please note:

1. Practice in the Prairie will be held outdoors only. There is no indoor alternative in the event of inclement weather. If the weather is looking sketchy, watch our Facebook page for a cancellation announcement.

2. All mats must be at least 6 feet apart from another. The only exception is yogis who came together in a group. Masks are not required for outdoor practice as long as at least 6 feet of space is maintained between individuals and non-household groups. 

3. Our instructors will all wear wireless mics to ensure their voice is amplified appropriately. 

4. Yogis should bring their own mat, blocks, straps, and any other gear. We will not have ICNC yoga mats available to borrow. 

5. The building will be open only for restroom use and to fill water bottles. Masks must be worn indoors. 

6. Teachers will not provide hands-on assists with postures. 

7. As always, if you or anyone in your household is ill, has been ill recently, or has been in contact with someone who has been ill, please stay home and rest. 

You do not need to register – just come with your yoga mat, ready to enjoy. This free practice is very popular. In order to start and end on time, please arrive a few minutes early to park and settle into your socially-distanced spot.
