Gardens Yoga: Dawn Chorus

Wake up with the birds this May Bank Holiday!

Join us during the first in a series of summer yoga experiences with I AM YOGI, starting with a special Dawn Chorus session.

Beginning in darkness, we’ll practise yoga as the sun rises, welcoming daybreak and soaking up those early morning rays to the beautiful backdrop of the musical feathered creatures.

Following our practice, we’ll take a mindful walk around the gardens, to experience the dawn chorus in all its glory, as the early morning birds greet you with a symphony of chirps, tweets and melodies!

International Dawn Chorus Day is an opportunity to pause, listen and welcome the enchanting sound of early morning birdsong.  Immerse yourself in the tranquillity of dawn and gently awaken your body in the company of nature, as we mark this magical moment.

Date: Sunday 5 May
Time: 5am – 6.30am

Did you know?

This celebration holds its roots right here in Birmingham? In May 1987, local broadcaster and nature enthusiast Chris Baines marked his birthday by inviting his friends and family to Moseley Bog, to take in the special sounds of nature at this time of year. This single gathering sparked an annual tradition, which is now observed worldwide on the first Sunday of May.

In partnership with I AM YOGI.
