Yoga at the SC Botanical Garden

Join Melissa Powell and Vanessa Bonet at the SC Botanical Garden for nature-based yoga classes!

Registration is required for many of the classes at the Garden.

Off the Mat and Into the Garden: Yoga + Walking with Melissa Powell

Join Melissa Powell, RYT 200, for a yoga series that combines mindful walking with yoga. We'll start and end at the Amphitheater. The class will begin with seated poses on the Amphitheater seating levels, then we’ll take a mindful walk through the Garden, pausing to do standing poses, and we’ll return to the Amphitheater to rest seated or lying down.

This class is appropriate for anyone who can comfortably walk on the Garden's paths, including some uneven terrain, like steps and gravel pathways.


The SC Botanical Garden is closed to visitors due to concerns around the novel coronavirus. We will schedule classes when the Garden re-opens.  (Current re-open date is May 9).

Where: SC Botanical Garden Amphitheater

Cost: $35 for one 4-week session; $10 per class to drop-in.

Questions? Contact Melissa at or 864-502-8328.

Yoga with Trees

Join Melissa Powell, RYT 200, for a 90-minute yoga class that incorporates trees into the practice.  The class will focus on mindful movement and connecting body, breath, and mind. The trees will inspire us with the steadiness and strength of their roots and trunks as well as the flexibility of their branches and leaves. We will be introducing ourselves to the trees and including them in the yoga practice.

No yoga experience needed. Participants should be able to get down to the ground and up again unassisted.


Sunday, May 17, 9 - 10:30 a.m.

Where: SC Botanical Garden Amphitheater

Cost: $10 per person per class in advance. No drop-ins, please.
To receive a refund for any reason, you must contact Melissa at least 5 days prior to class.
