Our team has a lot of affection for the Adventure Science Center — their Way Late Play Dates are some of the most creative and fun evening outings a grown-up/young-at-heart Nashvillian can find.
And we’re pretty taken in by creative approaches to yoga — like, say, Shenanigoats’ Goat Yoga, with a mix of instructors leading practice alongside furry and friendly goat yogis. (They have lots of classes coming up, including several East Nashville, close to the ACRE office.)
So all that in mind, Adventure Science Center’s Yoga Under the Stars series was tailor-made for us — and we thought some of our Nashville friends might be similarly intrigued.
The general idea: You’ll head to the Adventure Science Center’s Sudekum Planetarium, where an experienced yoga instructor will lead you through practice in darkness, surrounded by a 360-degree view of the stars under a 63-foot dome. (If you’ve ever been to Yoga Harmony over by The Nations, you might’ve already practiced with instructor Durden Napier.)
For these 75-minute sessions, picture poses while you’re awash in 6.5 million stars — bonus being, since you’re not actually outside at night in late-summer Tennessee, you won’t get distracted by being eaten alive by bugs.
There are three upcoming sessions: One this Saturday, Sept. 30 at 9 a.m., then the last Saturday of the month for October and November: Oct. 28 and Nov. 25, both at 9 a.m. too.
Tickets for each run $17 for Science Center members and $22 for non-members, and are available via adventuresci.org/yoga. Just bring your own mat, and a willingness to feel like a space-traveling yogi.
