7/12 9:30 with Jennifer Lovas, Yoga Centre
7/13 7:00 guided hike & meditation with Terry Hooker, Yoga Centre
7/13 8:30 with Rachel Hines, Yoga Centre
Richard Manuputy has been practicing Yoga since 1975, having studied asana with Maya Devi, a close student of B.K.S. Iyengar, and also with Natanga Zhander (Shandor Remete). Richard reminds us that the aim of yoga is to still the mind. The movements are geared to deepening the awareness of the energetic body by attunement to the breath and hereby becoming more in harmony with oneself.
Jennifer Lovas My desire is to nurture that inner knowing with all whom I share the beautiful practice of yoga. I am a 2011 graduate from Cal Poly with a degree in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism and completed my 200-hour Teacher Training program through Yoga Centre San Luis Obispo. I look forward to sharing this journey of self-discovery as we learn and grow together.
Terry Hooker brings a unique blend of worldly experience, philosophy and spiritual study. With a supportive and friendly style, his teaching is a fusion of his experience with yoga philosophy and practice, various meditation techniques, including Vipassana and Kriya Yoga meditation, and use of mantras and visualizations.
Rachel Hines If there has been one thing in my life that has brought me peace of mind and happiness, it is yoga. In my classes, my main focus is on alignment to help keep everybody safe as we balance, strengthen and stretch so you come out of class with a heightened awareness of your mind and body and an elevated feeling of wellbeing.
Bird Walk & Talk, Saturday, 8:00 am, Sunday, 7:00 am.
Every wonder why hawks sit in the tops of trees all year long and sparrows only do it for a month? How about why my binoculars are never in focus? What is and why do birds molt (change clothes) during the year? If you have ever laid awake at night wondering about these types of questions, why not join Itinerant Biologist and Tour Guide Greg Smith for a morning walk in the woods doing a little “birding” and getting answers to these questions. Or any other questions that might keep you awake. Meet at the parking lot near the Dog Park, east end of the Park.
Intergalactic Tour of the El Chorro Sky, Saturday, 8:45 pm–10:15 pm
Take an intergalactic tour of the universe without leaving the ground!

Take a Hike with an El Chorro Park Ranger! Saturday, 9:45 am, Sunday, 8:30 am.

We’ve Got Worms! Saturday, 10:00 am
Come learn how to be more sustainable at the Zero Waste Park at Dairy Creek Golf Course. Dairy Creek Golf Course strives to become a Zero Waste facility for our community residents, visitors, and other golf courses to learn the practices of Zero Waste Management.
The Zero Waste Park is open to the public year round as a self-guided tour. Josh Heptig, San Luis Obispo County Parks’ Golf Superintendent, will lead the tour and explain how Dairy Creek is changing how people think about golf courses. The Park includes traditional composting, worm composting, compost tea brewing, and the process of taking food scraps and converting it back into food for your table. “Essentially, we take raw materials like food waste, grass clippings, chipped tree debris, or paper products and feed it to our worms or compost it so that it can be turned into a fresh liquid fertilizer called compost tea.”
Learn how to make your home, place of business, and community a healthier place to live and how golf courses can be stewards of the environment and how you can become one too!
Dairy Creek Putting Clinic, Saturday, 10:30 am–11:15 am
This workshop, presented by PGA Member/Director of Golf Kent Lauble, introduces specific putting fundamentals to help you advance your golf skills and game.
