It's summer and there are many places to enjoy outdoor yoga and tai chi classes in Milwaukee, but the Lynden Sculpture Garden is unique. Our classes are set among 50 monumental sculptures sited across 40 acres of park, pond, and woodland, and because they are taught by artists, awareness of this environment has become a central part of their teaching practice at Lynden. Heather Eiden moves from yoga asanas to slow looking--at the sculptures at Lynden--as a technique for mindfulness. Angela Laughingheart combines the soft moving sequences of Tai Chi and Qigong with Lynden’s natural setting for an immune system-boosting experience. The class fee includes admission to the sculpture garden for the day.

Wear appropriate clothing and footwear (yoga socks, tai chi shoes, or something similar) for outdoor practice and bring a mat for yoga. Classes move into the sun room in inclement weather.

Each four-class session is $40/$20 members.
Drop-in rate: $12/$7 members

Tai Chi for Health Warriors with Angela Laughingheart
Sundays, 9-10:30 am
Session I: June 11-July 2, 2017 - Registration closed.
Session II: July 9-30, 2017

Nothing under heaven is more soft and yielding than water. Yet for eroding the hard and strong nothing can surpass it.
- Tao Te Ching

"Go with the flow" is the sum total of Tai Chi philosophy. The body starts this process with slow moving postures, then enhances it with coordinated breath and mindful presence. Outdoor practice adds another layer, allowing for harmonization with nature. Tai Chi for Health Warriors provides an immune system-boosting experience as you integrate your qi in Lynden’s natural setting.
