Yoga at the Zoo

Yoga at the Alaska Zoo

Unify your mental and physical health by joining Alicia King for yoga in the Zoo's Gateway Hall

Alicia has been practicing yoga for years. From the beaches in Florida to the Georgian Bay shores in Ontario and the Potomac River in Washington DC, Alicia now shares her yoga in Alaska. She believes yoga is not about being able to touch your toes or stand on your head. Yoga is about unifying mental and physical health, being happy, healthy, and feeling good about your self and body.

Alicia is full of energy and shares that energy and joyfulness in her classes. Tailoring her asanas through vinyasa flow, hatha, chair, or restorative sessions, Alicia has led yoga classes for young children, teens, beginners, office workers, and more ‘mature' students - all her classes are designed to meet her students where they are - in an environment where students can thrive in the yoga experience.

Teaching yoga is a joyful and rewarding part of Alicia's life. Join her classes offered at the Alaska Zoo from September to May on Tuesdays from 6pm to 7pm.

Classes are $10 each, payable by check or cash. Class fees benefit the zoo and support their educational programs. Please try to arrive early enough to be prepared and on your mat at the start time (6pm). If possible, come to class on an empty stomach - about two hours after a big meal, one hour after a light snack. Feel free to bring a water bottle if you would like.

Wear clothes that are comfortable but not too loose or baggy. Shorts, athletic pants and a tee shirt work fine. Bring a yoga mat if at all possible (if not, we have some extras).

Pre-registration is not necessary, but welcomed. Contact Alicia at with questions, pre-registration or if you have any medical conditions she should know about.
