Most yoga studios are closed due to COVID-19 mandates from the State of California, but Sherman Gardens in Corona del Mar has a solution: yoga in the gardens.
Beginning July 12 and continuing every Wednesday evening, Sherman Gardens is offering summer yoga classes in its picturesque central garden with instructor Darnell Renee.
According to her bio, Renee is a Certified and Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. She teaches at numerous studios in Newport Beach, Irvine, Dana Point, and Corona del Mar. Her teaching style is an eclectic mix of Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, and Kundalini. She enjoys teaching an energetic, flowing class while focusing on balance, strength, stretching and breath work.
