Stretch with Yoga

On Fridays (9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.) and Saturdays (8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.), get your yoga mats ready because Alexis Jane of One Natural Therapies is holding yoga classes on the lawn for only $10 each. For Lone Pine members, you get every 5th class for free!

Find inner peace. Meditate and calm your mind on weekend mornings before you start your day. The calmness of Lone Pine Sanctuary is definitely the perfect place for serenity.

Catch a Flick

On Friday nights, the lawn transforms into an outdoor cinema starting at 5:30 p.m. Catch a family movie with your kids. Don’t forget to bring your blankets and food for that perfect movie night with your loved ones under the stars. You can check out this page for their movie schedules.

Shop at the Farmer’s Market

Every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., an evening market runs in the sanctuary. The market has everything you need, from vegetables to fruits. All of them are fresh and locally produced. The stall owners get their produce from growers and farmers, ensuring a longer shelf life and freshness.

Feeling hungry? Enjoy the wide selection of dishes available for you at the market, choose from French, German, British, Asian, Indian, and so much more. You can also find some beautiful fresh flowers, buy free-range chicken, or score some hard-to-find spices and delectable, sweet treats.

For the Kids

Just right by the Riverside Cafe overlooking the river, there is a new play area for children so you can sit at the cafe whilst your children play. The Farmer’s Market at Lone Pine is packed with goodies that everyone in the family will love.
