Free Yoga Class With Lisa Wingood At NMB

February 23, 2021 | 0 Comments

For the last year, certified yoga teacher Lisa Wingood has been teaching yoga classes at the National Museum of Bermuda [NMB] on Saturday mornings.

Classes started as a free offering during NMB’s “Free for February” promotion in 2020, and while postponed during lockdown, they began again in July and have continued since.

This Saturday, February 27th, 2021 at 9am, Ms. Wingood is offering a free class in honour of Black History Month. She said: “I am honouring Black History Month through the lens of yoga, which is significant in unifying people of all ages, ethnicities, races and experience-levels at a significant landmark in Bermuda through the expression of movement, stillness, breath and balance. Black History is about those same things in building strength, flexibility and resilience in honor of those who have paved the way for us.”

Ms. Wingood’s yoga classes are accessible for all ages and abilities and all are welcome.

Participants have the unique opportunity of doing yoga outside, on the grounds of the historic Keep Fort which houses the Museum. In addition, Ms. Wingood and NMB have partnered with the Dockyard Pastry Shop, who are offering special brunch offerings for yoga participants after class.

Weekly participant Brenda Fubler said of the classes: “I am enjoying my “Me time” yoga at the National Museum of Bermuda. It is relaxing, calming and a great way to de-stress, exercise and meditate in a healthy and safe environment with a knowledgeable, encouraging and motivating professional such as Lisa Wingood. This is a positive and inspiring way to spend an early Saturday morning.”
