Bunnies Yoga highlights 2nd Annual Lakes Area Yoga Festival at Ruttger’s
Hoppy Hour Yoga is coming to the second annual Lakes Area Yoga Festival - a celebration of the innovative, life-affirming yoga and wellness available in the Brainerd Lakes Area, April 26-28 at Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge.
Area yoga studios will conduct six yoga sessions for yogis of all skill levels over the three-day event, including Hoppy Hour Yoga – a session featuring more than 30 therapy bunnies. The bunnies are provided by the Minnesota Companion Bunny Society (MCBS), a volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of companion rabbits.
“I’ve seen the Hoppy Hour Yoga in action and it’s cuteness overload,” Ruttger’s President Chris Ruttger said. “We’re sure people are going to love it.”
The Lakes Area Yoga Festival begins on Friday with an “Unpack Your Bags” yoga session and welcome gathering on Friday evening. The bulk of the festival takes place on Saturday, however, with four sessions, lunch, snacks and a vendor expo for the latest gear and yoga merchandise. The yoga festival ends on Sunday, April 28 with a “Leave it at the Lake” yoga session.
Admission for the event is $65 per person. This gets you into all yoga sessions, and includes lunch and snacks on Saturday. People interested in attending, can sign up or get more information at ruttgers.com/spring-yoga-expo/.
Classes will be led by instructors from Karmady Yoga of Aitkin, Lakes Area Yoga Association of Brainerd and Uplifted Wellness Studio of Crosby.
