Candlelight Yoga in the Museum

Join us on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month for candlelight restorative yoga in the Museum! We are partnering with Lunita Velásquez, a local certified yoga instructor, to bring you a uniquely grounding experience in the center of our historic 1915 building. We’ll move and breathe together on our mats as the sun sets, relying on natural light and flickering candles to set a calming mood. The Wednesday night classes are based in a gentle restorative yoga practice, which is a slower paced practice that focuses on deep stretching, breath, and strengthening the mind-body connection.

All are welcome, regardless of physical ability or yoga experience. People under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one for your practice. We encourage guests to wear layers and bring blocks, blankets, and/or any additional yoga accessories they would prefer that will support their practice. The Museum will have a limited number of clean blankets, blocks, and mats available to lend out if needed. Our historic building does not have central air and heating.

The class will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. Please plan ample time for parking within Balboa Park. Museum doors will open at 5:15 p.m. for check-in and to set up your mat. To maintain a quiet restorative experience for all, the Museum doors will be closed and locked at 5:40 p.m.

Please contact with any questions.
