Whether you are an expert at every pose or a just getting a hang of the flow, yoga is an activity that athletes of all ages and abilities can enjoy. The FREE, mixed level classes being offered in city parks this summer are making yoga accessible to everyone who wants to improve their flexibility, build strength, and relax deeply. Saturdays and Sundays are particularly packed with fun yoga classes. Try one of these this weekend:
- Yoga at the Sunday Parkland Games: every Sunday from 3:30-6pm on the Cambridge side of the river near the Weeks Footbridge, adults are invited to practice yoga with an instructor from Karma Yoga while the kids enjoy all the recreational activities offered at the Charles River Conservancy’s fifth season of Sunday Parkland Games
- Afroflow yoga at Franklin Park: Join the yoga party on Franklin Park’s Schoolmaster Hill every Saturday at 10am for an hour long Afroflow style class for all levels
- Gentle yoga at Spectacle Island in the Boston Harbor: Take a short ferry ride to meet at the Spectacle Island Visitor’s Center at 10am every Saturday for a 1.5 hour gentle yoga class while looking out at the Boston Harbor and the other harbor islands
Keep your muscles loose and your mind relaxed during the week with a FREE yoga class by the Boston Frog Pond. As long as the summer sun is shining, this outdoor yoga series will be held on Thursdays at 6pm. Bring your mat or enjoy your poses right on the grass. But have no fear! If clouds are threatening to cancel your outdoor yoga plans, bring the party indoors at Boston’s first all-donation yoga studio. Yoga classes can be costly but at Karma Revolution in Allston, yogis are welcome to take any class and just give what you they feel comfortable with to support the studio.
