The sun is calling and so is your yoga mat! All levels welcome to join for a one hour yoga practice followed by a 15 minute meditation on the west side of the beautiful Hegeler Carus Mansion grounds. In this hatha yoga practice postures are encouraged to be held for 1-3 minutes. Classes start Saturday, June 11 at 9am and will be held every Saturday in June, July, August and September2016.

Classes are guided by Katie Hoffman. She’s been an athlete from youth through college and first began practicing yoga in 2008. Katie holds two 200-hour yoga certifications. Her first love was vinyasa, followed by hot, then restorative. Her favorite yoga posture is savasana. In her free time she enjoys road biking, dharma talk, crystals, hiking, and more recently gardening.

Students are encouraged to bring their own mat. A limited number of mats are available to rent for $1 each. Outdoor restrooms are on the grounds.

“Insiders Only” Tour Descriptions and upcoming dates

7 September 2016-Basement (The Nooks and Crannies Tour):  where Hegeler Carus Insiders are guided through the basement rooms, weaving in and out between industry and artistry.  There are Hamilton printing block cabinets filled with thousands of the printing blocks used in the early days of Open Court Publishing.  There are the components of the billiards table.  The west wall is a cornucopia of objects, some of which can still be identified.

12 October 2016-Bedroom (The Bed, Bath, and Yonder Tour):  where Hegeler Carus Insiders are guided through the “bedroom” floor of the Mansion.  The tour travels from small guest bedrooms to moderately sized family bedrooms, through staff offices, and finally to the spectacular Master Bath.  (Really—it’s amazing!)  Learn why transoms were so important, and why Olga was excited to see her older sister get married.  Surprise the secrets of Alwin’s outdoorsy, adventuresome nature, and why one bedroom in particular is both breathtaking—and heartbreaking.

10 November 2016 -Attic and Cupola (The Artifact and Architecture Tour):  where Hegeler Carus Insiders are guided through attic rooms filled with exactly what you’d expect:  stuff.  There is clothing, steamer trunks, furniture, magazines, diaries, tennis racquets, books, and many more of the “usual” attic suspects.  In addition, this special tour also showcases an astounding geological artifact collection, a rare medical curiosity, and the family Steinway piano.

All tours start promptly at 6:30 pm
