Spring programs at Lake Sammamish State Park

Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park is offering new programs at Lake Sammamish State Park in May.

Yoga enthusiasts can find balance with a Vinyasa Power Flow Yoga Class offered by Verde Organic Body and taught by Nicole Keicher. The sessions will be held on Tuesdays in May from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. Keicher will provide strengthening and alignment queues and all are welcome. The class sequence will start with a focus on strength, flexibility and cardio, while incorporating the balance of restoration, deep stretching, breath work and mindfulness.

Participants can also learn how to photograph flowers, landscapes, water and birds in a nature photography class offered by award-winning nature photographer Tim Boyer. The series consists of two 2-hour class sessions and a Saturday 3-hour photography/nature walk at Lake Sammamish State Park.

Participants will learn to improve or begin nature photography utilizing the camera they have. Tim will discuss elements such as the quality of light, how to get a sharp image, how to get a great point of view, how to manage the background, what to watch for at the edges of the frame, how to get a great composition, and how to get a good exposure.
