INFORMATION ABOUT THE SANCTUARY
The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, was founded in 1995, provides the largest USA natural habitat refuge developed specifically for endangered African and Asian elephants.
The Elephant Sanctuary exists for two reasons:
• To provide a haven for old, sick or needy elephants in a setting of green pastures,
dense forests, spring-fed ponds and heated barns for cold winter nights.
• To provide education about the crisis facing these social, sensitive, passionately intense,
playful, complex, exceedingly intelligent and endangered creatures.
This earth focussed and grounded Yoga workshop will help to bring a connection to the body with flowing mindful yet strong movements. The asanas and pranayama will help to create a deeper sense of compassion and wellbeing. The session is open to mixed levels of ability, but is not suitable for beginners to Yoga. For anyone who is new to Yoga or a beginner please book onto the Wednesday evening 6pm Yoga classes.
