Free Yoga in Peacock Park

Starting in October, the BID and Dharma Studio will be hold free Yoga classes in Peacock Park. That's right, starting October 1 and every Tuesday from 6 to 7 pm, these open-level weekly yoga classes will offer stress-free Yoga in the park.

All ages and all levels are welcome. The classes will run through April and then take a break for the hotter months. 

A certified yoga instructor from Dharma Studio will lead each class. All participants must sign a waiver and should bring their own yoga mat, water and towel. Classes will be Vinyasa-based featuring a flowing energetic style, including breath-work, meditation and relaxation.

Many of you know Dharma Studio on Commodore Plaza, Natalie and Lori are a fixture in the Grove. The passion, experience and love which fueled Dharma’s beginnings can be felt the moment you step inside. The idea was to create a warm yoga home and fill it with the best instructors, interesting eclectic events, and to open its doors to the community at large to experience the far reaching powers of yoga. Schedule and accessibility is varied for all levels of practice, from athletic yoga to yoga for the physically impaired and everything in between.

At first I thought awesome! but after reading the above comment I agree. I am not sure laying on the grass is a good idea! They are still doing more testing at Peacock and Kennedy, nothing has been cleared yet!

People don't be so naive, anywhere you step in any metropolis has levels of pollutants, do your own testing inside your home and yard, you will be surprised by the results. How many different types of detergents and pesticides do you store at home? How about paints? It seems the testing of 112 parks is another scheme to spend the money we do not have and reason for redesigning, destroying and rebuilding existing parks, again with the money we do not have. How about try educating people not to throw so much trash in parks and public places? How about we educate ourselves to live cleaner? How about we convince the City to do a better job cleaning up?

I I think you need to work on your reading comprehension skills.
We are not talking about household waste like detergents or pesticides. We are talking about dangerous levels of arsenic and other insidious chemicals. We are not talking about the results of throwing your old Snickers wrappers or old tennis shoes in the bushes. We are talking about chemicals that stay in your system and create damage at the cellular level.

People ate also just a little bit upset that the local officials have known about this for years and that it took findings in a park in an affluent section of the Grove to get results.
People in West Grove have been having problems for years (can you say cancer cluster?) and trying to get something done but it took a UM student and the evidence of contamination in Sarnoff's personal park to get a response. And what a response! Immediate shut down.
Just another example of Miami's rampant racism. If you live on one side of 32nd Ave you get delays, excuses and rebuffs. If you live on the other side of 32nd you get immediate response, media attention and a personal appearance and promise of attention to the issue from your Commisioner. I guess it pays to live on the white, er.. I mean, the right side of 32nd Ave.

The point is there has been a problem with Old Smokey which has been ignored forever and now the powers are trying to say we have a much wider crisis when they should start cleaning up at the source.

Nothing is free --

who is paying Dharma Studio?
how is Dharma making from this deal?
how much is Peacock Park getting out of the deal?

Just curious...

Dharma probably isn't making money on this specific event except doing something to introduce their business to the community, I believe it's called ADVERTISING.
