Neighbors on the Mat Say...

Relaxing and non-judgmental for any level of yogi!

A great experience to learn about yoga practice on and off the mat. An experience that helps open your heart and mind.

Your voice was so soothing and relaxing. 

Peaceful Location

​Greeted by camels and surrounded by palms, it will feel like we've journeyed far from Des Moines for our getaway.

The Blank Park Zoo Discovery Center features a wall of windows that provide a view into nature's dreamland.


We'll enjoy our time together as the sun's rays play off the waterfall and vibrant birds soar in front of us.
