PLEASE NOTE: Due to the updated Covid 19 safety precautions enacted on December 8th,  we are moving back outside to Bolinas Park but at an earlier time so we still have light.  The class will be geared toward yoga students with a Beginner to Intermediate yoga practice. Please bring your own yoga mat, two yoga blocks and a yoga strap. If you do not have any of those props and are unable to procure them for any reason, please reach out to Veronica at geretzvj@gmail.com and she will work with you to find what you need at no cost.

Please Note: this Outdoor Yoga offering will follow Covid 19 protocols of physical distancing. Please bring & wear your masks. The instructor will not be doing any hands on adjustments. 

This class is free, though there will be a chance to donate if you have the capacity. Donations (cash only, please) will go to the Town of Fairfax & SURJ Marin. SURJ Marin engages white people to dismantle systems of white supremacy and join the ongoing multiracial movement for racial justice. Our work is informed by relationships of accountability with local Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) organizations and community leaders. SURJ Marin splits 75% of their funds raised with both the Marin City Health & Wellness Center and The Multicultural Center of Marin.

Earth Day Celebration:  Bioblitz with Photography

Sunday April 25th from 9:30 -11:30 am

Loma Alta Open Space Preserve

Become a citizen scientist and help us document the diversity in our Fairfax Open Space Preserves! Fairfax Parks and Recreation with the Artist in Residence program are partnering with Fairfax Open Space Committee (FOSC) for this unique undertaking: our first Bioblitz to celebrate Earth Day. A BioBlitz is an event where a group of people tries to document as many species as possible in a specific time frame. It’s a great way to get to know a place, local animals and plants, and collect real scientific data. We will also be learning some of the basics of wildlife photography.

Our first Bioblitz will take place Sunday April 25th from 9:30AM until 11:30 PM at the Loma Alta Open Space Preserve. This is an in-person event, adapted to COVID regulations, with social distancing, masks at all times, touchless sign up, and no equipment sharing. We will walk in very small groups, explore nature, photograph and document our observations using the free smartphone app iNaturalist.  This is planned as the first of many.

If this sounds like fun, join us!

For more info and to RSVP please contact pascalberandesign@yahoo.com
