More than 300 Connecticut residents participated in the family-friendly classes.
HARTFORD, CT (September 7, 2023) – In partnership with Yoga In Our City this summer, the Hartford Yard Goats hosted three no-cost, family-friendly yoga classes at Dunkin’ Donuts Park. The program, called “Yoga In The Park,” launched in 2022 to offer a unique and fun experience for Connecticut residents of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds to enjoy the many benefits of yoga while immersed in the Hartford community.
Yoga In The Park is an extension of the Yoga In Our City program, an annual initiative presented by ConnectiCare that offers over 700 free yoga classes at 22 parks in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, New London, Waterbury, and Willimantic.
“Hosting accessible yoga classes in the heart of Connecticut’s capitol offers a new appreciation for our community while also providing many mental, physical, and spiritual benefits,” said TJ Clynch, Founder of Yoga In Our City. “We’re thankful for this partnership with the Hartford Yard Goats, which has allowed us to expand the beloved Yoga In Our City program with this exciting experience.”
Yoga offers many physical and mental health benefits, including improved strength, balance, flexibility, heart health, sleep quality and energy, stress relief, cognitive skills such as learning and memory, mood, and decreased anxiety.
