Yogi Bear just took on a whole new meaning!

Here at Hi HQ we’re always on the hunt for fun and unique things to do at the weekend. When the glorious sunshine comes out, we want to make the most of the weather and hit the beach or go for a stroll in the park. A trip to Fota Wildlife Park in the good weather is a winning combination, so when we heard that yoga classes are now taking place within the grounds of the park, we were immediately intrigued.

Hosted by Bikram Yoga, you can now take part in an exercise class that will have you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed for the week ahead. Continuing until the end of August, there are three different types of classes people can partake in which range from family-friendly sessions to more exercise intense ones.
