AUSTIN HERB SOCIETY MONTHLY MEETING
Yoga for Gardening
Tuesday, January 3 | Zilker Botanical Garden
9:30 a.m. Check in & Refreshments | 10 a.m. Program
In this special class, participants will learn different poses to practice before, during and after time in the garden to get the most from their experience and avoid any pain and stiffness that may follow. Yoga and gardening are a natural pairing, says presenter Angela Richter-Gronross, who is an experienced registered yoga teacher as well as a Reiki master/teacher and a sound healing practitioner.
“Planting a seed, nurturing its growth, and experiencing its beautiful expression in full bloom is just like yoga,” she explains. “Nurturing ourselves mentally, spiritually and physically is what the practice of yoga is all about.”
For this program, the room will be set up with chairs so attendees can participate sitting down to whatever degree is comfortable for them. Angela has designed her classes to be welcoming, fun, and beginner-friendly. Participants learn how to relax the body, breath and mind.
Her style of teaching is based in the Hatha tradition, and she focuses on natural body alignment and a firm foundation to build strength and stability in both mind and body. Angela is a teacher with The Yoga Room, which is based in Round Rock but offers a variety of online classes and videos for yoga enthusiasts of all levels.
Visitors and guests are welcome!

About Austin Herb Society & Zilker Herb Garden
Since 1982, the Austin Herb Society has been educating members and the community about herbs, including propagation, landscaping, history, folklore, and culinary, medicinal, and decorative uses of herbs. While our members are united by an interest in herbs, they are also a diverse group of individuals: from gardeners and herbalists to cooks and business owners.
AHS members design and maintain the Zilker Herb Garden—a dazzling landscape of color and fragrance that has become a centerpiece of Zilker Botanical Garden. Here, visitors can touch, taste and smell their way through nearly 200 varieties of herbs, depending on the season. Bees and butterflies dot the beds of basil, lavender and calendula. There are classic culinary herbs like rosemary, mint and thyme alongside herbs revered for their health attributes, including aloe and echinacea.
In addition to hands-on learning in the Zilker Herb Garden, members enjoy:
Monthly meetings with expert speakers on diverse topics
Educational workshops & seminars throughout the year
Study groups focused on culinary herbs and herbal products
Field trips to unique gardens and herb-loving businesses
Delicious herbal refreshments at in-person meetings
Fellowship with interesting & informed herb lovers
