The National Museum of the Great Lakes announced a new event series that will take place throughout the spring and summer, Yoga by the Boat

This “unique and rejuvenating event series” is hosted in collaboration with Parting Clouds Yoga Studio.

“We’re excited to collaborate with Parting Clouds Yoga to host a series of classes in our gorgeous environment,” Ashley Streichert, Marketing and Communications Manager at the National Museum of the Great Lakes, said. “It’s a great way to combine health and wellness with the rich history of the Great Lakes.”

The classes will be held once monthly on Saturdays throughout the spring and summer, May 18, June 8 and July 29 from 9 am to 10 am at the museum near the Schoonermaker on the Great Lakes concrete area. The class costs $15 and all are invited to join. Bring your own mat. 

“Led by the skilled instructors from Parting Clouds Yoga in Maumee, Yoga by the Boat offers a harmonious blend of yoga poses and mindful breathing techniques,” a Museum spokesperson said in a statement. “Participants will gracefully flow on their mats amidst the relaxing waterfront scenery of the Museum, finding peace and balance in movement and stillness.”
