Butterfly Wonderland invites guests to a Yoga in the Rainforest experience on Tuesday, June 9, at 5:30 p.m. featuring all levels of Vinyasa based yoga geared toward connecting breath with movement.

After taking a few moments to settle in and enjoy the scenery, students will be guided through a series of yoga postures that will build strength and flexibility. Modifications and adjustments will be offered so any level of student will feel supported.

The class will be at Butterfly Wonderland, 9500 E. Via de Ventura in Scottsdale.

Breathing and meditation techniques throughout the class will allow students to find peace and steadiness within their personal practice.  Students will be invited to enjoy the beauty of butterflies while connecting to the beauty within.  This class is recommended for ages 18 years and older, according to a press release.

Rhiannon Ritchey is a certified yoga teacher who has had a personal yoga practice for nine years, according to the release. She has always had a profound love for nature, especially the ocean.

As an ocean conservationist, Ms. Ritchey, has spent several years hoping to inspire others to appreciate and protect nature.  Now, she takes her love for the natural world onto the mat hoping to inspire her students to find their own inner light.

The class is $20 per person. Pre-registration and payment required. Proceeds will benefit the Butterfly Wonderland Foundation.

To register, contact 480-800-3000, ext. 207.  For more information about the class, visit the website at http://www.butterflywonderland.com
