Friday from 6 – 8:30 p.m. we will host an adult-only evening of live music, food, and adult beverages in our rustic hay lounge in the Pecan Grove!

A limited number of tables will be available for purchase, allowing us plenty of room to spread out. Cost per table is $125 and each table will seat four adults (hay bale seating!). The ticket includes hor d’oeuvres and a bottle of wine. Additional bottles of wine and beer will be available via donation at the event.

Saturday afternoon from 2-6 p.m. we will host an afternoon of fun for the entire family in the Meadow Nature Preserve!

Family-friendly activities will include hayrides, hay games, a grass maze, scavenger hunts, prizes, photo stations, and more! Tickets (for up to 6 people) are $20. A limited number of tickets will be sold to allow for social distancing.

Connemara adds Supported Yoga classes on Tuesdays

Connemara Yoga In The Meadow image

Join us for Supported Yoga every Tuesday at 10:15 a.m. in the Connemara Meadow Nature Preserve. 

Supported yoga uses a stability ball to provide a base of support for beginners, post injury, pregnancy, or difficulty with a vinyasa flow where vertical to horizontal movements are not well tolerated.  

The class structure is a flowing sequence, not diminished by the ball as there are challenges. The Asana Practice with the ball flows from seated postures to standing, kneeling, seated on mat and supine.  

While the ball assists with the asana, it also deepens the sensation of the stretch, and with progressions provides challenge.  The ball provides more mobility, balance, greater range of motion and challenge than chair yoga.
