CAM­BRIDGE — Yoga lovers can sign on for “Sun­set Yoga at the Light­house,” a spe­cial ses­sion com­ing up on the wa­ter­front in Cam­bridge, on Fri­day, Oct. 25.

Heather Rupp of the award-win­ning Eb­bTide Well­ness Stu­dio in Eas­ton will lead the vinyasa class out­side the Chop­tank River Light­house at Long Wharf. Af­ter­ward, the light­house will wel­come par­tic­i­pants to en­joy sun­set from the deck while so­cial­iz­ing over wine and cheese.

The yoga class will start at 5 p.m. The sun is slated to set that night at 6:13 p.m.

The event is part of a broader se­ries of talks, screen­ings, tours and more that are be­ing held in Cam­bridge in con­junc­tion with a trav­el­ing Smith­so­nian ex­hibit called “Wa­ter/Ways” that will be in Cam­bridge through Nov. 30.

“We’re very ex­cited to be part­ner­ing with the ex­perts at Eb­bTide on a ses­sion that is go­ing to en­gage peo­ple with our wa­ter­front and our light­house in a new, fun and healthy way,” said Jim Duffy, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the non­profit Cam­bridge Light­house Foun­da­tion, which is part­ner­ing with

Eb­bTide Well­ness on the event.

The event also has the sup­port of the Heart of the Ch­e­sa­peake Coun­try Her­itage Area and the Mar yland Her­itage Ar­eas Au­thor­ity.

A cer­ti­fied in­struc­tor in yoga and med­i­ta­tion, Rupp plans to in­clude el­e­ments of both dis­ci­plines in the light­house yoga ses­sion, with mind­ful­ness touch­points and themed in­ten­tion in­cor­po­rated with yoga to cre­ate a ses­sion that prom­ises to move the heart, mind and body.

“When the foun­da­tion ap­proached me about this,” Rupp said, “it took me about five sec­onds to say yes. Do­ing this in such a unique and gorgeous lo­ca­tion, it’s go­ing to be a great ex­pe­ri­ence.”

The ses­sion is free and open to all skill lev­els, but ad­vance reser­va­tions are re­quired, as the size of the class will be capped at 25.
