Wellness Wednesday: Joslyn offers free 'garden yoga' sessions
At 2 p.m. on Sundays throughout August -- specifically, Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25 -- there will be free hour-long yoga sessions in Joslyn's outdoor sculpture garden.
Instructors from Omaha Yoga & Bodywork Center will guide participants through basic poses to help strengthen your balance, lengthen your body and center your mind. Go early or stay late to stroll through the museum galleries or picnic in the gardens.
