Yoga in the Great Hall

Great Hall

This event is sold out.

In Tudor England, spaces like the Folger Shakespeare Library’s extraordinary Great Hall were designed for socializing and exercise. Join yoga instructor Jen DeMayo for an all-level Vinyasa yoga class in this “Tudor-deco” space.
During the 50-minute class, students will be guided in breath and flowing movement carefully paired with Shakespearean sonnet readings. Participants should bring their own yoga mat and dress in comfortable clothing that allows movement.

Students may remain in the hall after the class to explore the exhibition A Monument to Shakespeare: The Architecture of the Folger Shakespeare Library and see architectural details designed by architect Paul Cret.

The class is free and limited to 20 students who will be admitted on a first come, first served basis. Registration is required, but does not guarantee a spot in the class.
