There's something about exercising in a truly beautiful setting that helps the stress just flow out of our fingertips. Birds chirping, sunlight dappling, water burbling over rocks. Descanso Gardens, recognizing that surroundings and inner peace go hand-in-hand, hosts a special Fitness Walk and Yoga class tomorrow morning and Friday.
The class includes an invigorating, work-those-legs stride through the extensive gardens, followed by an hour of yoga work in one of Descanso's charming buildings. Dress to move -- tennies and workout clothes -- and, if you can, plan on hanging out for a bit of lunch after class (not included in the fee). We're so very fond of the quaint snack bar area, with its twisty vines and shady pagoda, and think it is the ideal spot to cool down from huffing/puffing/stretching/toning.
