Instructor Kelly Heiss leads a yoga session at Olentangy Indian Caverns in Delaware County. "This is just one of those special, unique experiences," she said.

A dozen yoga practitioners felt the cool, damp ground under their arms as they stretched out their yoga mats. 

They breathed in the 55-degree air as they meditated in the dimly lit location.   

And each and every after in a when, they have been surprised by a minimal droplet of h2o falling from the ceiling onto their deal with or hand.  

That’s the sort of detail that can occur, even though, when you do yoga 75 feet underground in a cave. 

“I’m glad I brought my yoga socks,” explained participant Michelle Walters, incorporating that her extensive-sleeve shirt and full-duration leggings had been very good ideas, too, inspite of the incredibly hot, humid August weather outdoors.   

For Walters, who typically takes section in larger-intensity yoga classes or people in very hot rooms, the recent session inside of Olentangy Indian Caverns brought a welcome change of pace – both equally in conditions of the environment and the pace of the lesson.  

“It was extremely enjoyable,” stated Walters, a 36-year-outdated Powell resident who attended the cave yoga course with neighbor Amber Mabry. “It was good to try out some thing new in a new spot. It had a quite pleasant ambiance.”

The historic Delaware County venue on Sunday early morning offered its first in a series of cave yoga workshops using place this tumble. The other two sessions will get put Sept. 19 and Oct. 10 and tickets can be obtained at for $29.  

Although the caverns have hosted yoga classes in the nontraditional setting before, these most the latest events mark the initially ones because ahead of the coronavirus pandemic hit, reported Katherine Meyerdirk, who operates advertising and marketing and activities for the caverns.
