Explore an afternoon of meditative movement, dirty hands, and deepening roots with Wildlight Yoga and Plant Shop Chicago.
Ozzy, co-owner of Plant Shop Chicago, will offer students a healthy selection of plants, soil, and pots while guiding students in a hands-on experience, demonstration, and Q+A regarding houseplant care and maintenance, watering, repotting, and propogation. Houseplants, cacti, and succulents will be the focus. After students have potted their plants, we'll place them at the corner of our mats and Kelli Wefenstette, self-professed 'plant mom' and lover of all things green and growing, will lead students in a deep roots and wings Hatha yoga class to center the mind and harness all that green energy for growth.
