You’ve heard of the downward dog, but have you heard slinky eel?
Okay, so the slinky eel isn’t actually a yoga position – but if it was it would be a cross in between the cobra pose and a fish pose. Take your practice under the sea at Georgia Aquarium’s most unique socially distant yoga class in the area.
It’s time to stretch your sea legs, Atlanta. On January 12, the Georgia Aquarium is offering a one-of-a-kind yoga experience.
“Yoga by the Water offers socially distant yoga classes led by local instructors which are designed to challenge students of all experience levels,” the aquarium writes on its event page. “Sessions take place in our magnificent Oceans Ballroom, offering incredible views of manta rays and whale sharks while you challenge your mind and body. If your fitness goal is to become a happier and healthier version of yourself, this is the studio for you!”
Tickets to the 60-minute aqua yoga session are priced at $20 a piece and must be ordered in advance. Participants must bring their own exercise mat as well as towel and water. Additionally, yogis must wear a mask at all times in the facility, class included. The aquarium will also be conducting contactless temperature checks to ensure all participants are safe. Further safety measures will have participants spaced 6 feet apart.
Doors open at 6 pm for the 6:30 pm space is limited. Tickets are non-refundable.
