Yoga in the Sunflowers 2023

While it took a little longer for our sunflowers to bloom in the Summer 2023 drought, we were still able to have a refreshing morning practicing yoga and learning about land conservation amidst the cool breezes, towering oaks, and rolling hills of Pine Knoll Farm!

Land Trust for Louisiana board member and Downtown Yoga co-founder Brenna Barzenick led a Vinyasa class for our community out on the farm. Following the practice, Land Protection Specialist Nelwyn McInnis took participants on a tour of Cherokee Beach, our upcoming conservation easement on the Tangipahoa River. Plant-based beverages from Saint August Brew Company and vegan fare from Bhakti Farms were a hit with our guests, staff, and volunteers! The Land Trust is proud to be able to offer Yoga in the Sunflowers as an opportunity to gather as a community and seek wellness in the beauty of nature.

This event would not be possible without our dedicated staff, board members, volunteers, and sponsors. Thank you to everyone who played a role in making the second annual Yoga in the Sunflowers a success. We can’t wait to see you out on Pine Knoll Farm next year!
