Yoga in the Sunflowers Was a Wonderful Success!

We’re so thankful to everyone who came out on a hot, sunny – and beautiful! – Saturday in July to appreciate the healing power of nature with us. Over a hundred participants, volunteers, vendors, and yogis gathered at Pine Knoll Farm for a morning of calm among the sunflowers. Your positive vibes, energy, and excitement were infectious. It was a true testament to the power of gathering as a community in nature!

We can’t thank Brenna Barzenick and Downtown Yoga enough for working with us to produce this event. The Flow-Vinyasa yoga class was a wonderful moment of connection in a hectic world. The studio was a joy to partner with, from start to finish!

Thank you to Dr. Jay Addison, all of our volunteers and vendors, and the staff of Pine Knoll Farm for providing the GORGEOUS location and bringing all of the moving parts together! We had a big, dedicated team behind us. You were all rock stars!



Nelwyn McInnis, our Land Protection Specialist, led a post-yoga tour of Pine Knoll’s longleaf pine restoration project. Thank you for sharing your expertise on how important it is to conserve these native forest ecosystems!

The true VIPs: the sunflowers. Thank you for giving us your beauty as a backdrop to this healing day. Isn’t nature amazing??

To everyone who was a part of Yoga in the Sunflowers, we can’t wait to continue connecting with you as we work to conserve Louisiana lands and waters, forever!
