Yoga at Tower Grove Farmer’s Market

with Satinder Khalsa

Satinder has been offering yoga under the canopy of trees at Tower Grove Park during the Farmer’s Market since 2006. Each year, Satinder travels to India and spends months deepening his own knowledge of a style of yoga called Ashtanga.  His passion for the practice of yoga is palpable, and his dedication to sharing Ashtanga in its most traditional form is what makes his classes unique, challenging, and inspiring.

Time: 9am
