From Yoga on the Pier offered seven days a week to pop-up classes at awesome spots like Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, there are tons of yoga experiences to partake in this summer at locations all around town.
Choose to stretch it out on the grass, spread your mat beneath the beautiful Benjamin Franklin Bridge or even strike a pose on a paddle board atop the Schuylkill River. Note: most classes are BYOMat.
Below, we’ve got 17 (!) places to participate in an outdoor yoga class this summer.
Featured at #11: Floating Yoga
If you're ready to put your yogi balance to the test, try taking your practice to the top of a paddle board on the Delaware River. "Floating Yoga" classes led by instructors from Aqua Vida right near Spruce Street Harbor Park invite you to utilize the extra challenge of the water to really get focused and deepen that mind-body connection. And don't forget your swimsuit – while classes go at a pace designed so that you won't fall in the river, you are guaranteed to get a little wet.
