Thursday, June 21st, is International Yoga Day and the first day of summer. In celebration of both, The National Hotel , is hosting a special poolside yoga session at 7 p.m. followed by a reception at the hotel’s Aqua Club and Lounge. Led by international instructor Jenny Cornero , the yoga class will pay tribute to “108,” a sacred number in Hinduism and yoga, by encouraging students to bend their bodies with 108 sun salutations, followed by deep Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation) that removes any remaining impurities to gather all the benefits of a deep unique experience. The one and half hour class will be followed by refreshments and healthy appetizers, as well as drink specials. Class is $ 35 per person and includes chef’s choice of healthy light bites and one beverage ticket for National Solstice cocktail/mocktail or juice or wine. Yoga mat is not included. The hotel will have mats available for rent for $2 per mat (plus 7% sales tax). This class is open to all levels.
