Namaste in the Neighborhood at The Attwater

Summer officially starts on Wednesday, and there’s no better place to savor the season of sun and fun, sailing and celebrating, and the spoils of the sea than here in Newport. While it’s the best time of year to relax and unwind, social schedules do indeed get hectic, so setting apart some time to be mindful, thankful and appreciate life in the moment and all the beauty that surrounds us here on Aquidneck Island is imperative. 

I was reminded of how blissful if feels after yoga recently when I was able to practice with trees swaying in the breeze overhead and fluffy white cloud sauntering across the sky on the back deck of The Attwater. The boutique hotel on Liberty Street (steps from the Newport Art Museum) is known for its chic coastal meets contemporary interior design, the deck is spacious and secluded, and though just a stone’s throw from Bellevue Avenue, you’d never know you’re in the heart of Historic Hill.

Getting our “om” on…

On the third Thursday of each month, The Attwater opens its doors to the community for yoga from 6pm – 7pm, followed by an hour-long pop-up shop featuring  local makers in The Attwater Café. Not very flexible? Yoga is a challenge for you? No worries – that’s why yoga is always called a “practice,” and besides, The Attwater’s Vinyasa-style yoga classes are taught by the AWESOME Emily Moyer (pictured at top) from Newport’s Community Yoga Center for WellnessNewport’s Community Yoga Center for Wellness, who walks you through each pose with gentle encouragement.

Cost: $20 per class for hotel and community guests. Classes are limited to 8 participants, so reservations are strongly encouraged. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite or can be paid in cash to Emily upon arrival. Enjoy your post-yogaIMG_8606 bliss with a complimentary seasonal smoothie made by The Attwater team. Guests are asked to bring their own yoga mat, but the instructor will have a few extra on hand as well. 

The monthly public class dates and pop-up partners are: 

The weekly yoga series will continue through September 29. Namaste.

PS: I posted some fun pics from the inaugural yoga session at The Attwater on my Instastories at @newportstyle!
