Free Yoga Boston: Summer 2019

Outdoor free yoga classes are all over Boston this summer.Here is the 7th Annual listing of free yoga classes for the summer! There are close to more than 40 classes, so there should be something for just about everyone.

Take a look at the Introduction to the 2017 list, for general information and suggestions for taking free yoga classes.

Click the links for details to confirm dates, to see if you need to register, for weather cancellations, etc.

Many branches of the Boston Public Library have free yoga classes on different days. Take a look at the website for details. Many classes, especially without dates, are ongoing.

As always, this list is a work in progress that will have changes and updates. Because I’m trying to get this post up sooner rather than later, it might change a bit more than usual.

Please let me know if you have any questions, corrections and/or tips! Enjoy!

Free Yoga Boston: On The Greenway

Happy Summer! Today is the first full day of summer and I am so here for it! Just in time for me to tell you about my second outdoor free yoga class. The class was to enjoy the light of the full moon.

It was this past Monday, the night of the full strawberry moon that Moonlight Yoga On The Greenway took place. There were maybe 50 or 60 people, so it was a nice sized crowd. But we all still had enough space to stretch out.

The class is part of an outdoor summer series collaboration between Peace in Boston, Black & Blonde (Marlene Boyette and Erin Kay Anderson), The Rose Fitzgerald Greenway, Athleta, with Meghan “Meg” Gaucher.

If you didn’t make it to this class, you have at least a couple of more chances this summer, July 16th and September 14th.

It was more than convenient for me to attend, so I had absolutely no excuse not to go. And it’s easy to talk myself out of going places. It was right after work and outside of South Station, where I would be going anyway to get the train home. Outside of the horror show that is the Red Line,which is another story, I had a very zen evening.

The class was more slow and sitting stretches than standing poses, but that was perfect after a day of work and calmed me down for my commute. I definitely recommend this class if you get a chance to go.

The only downside was that the sky was cloudy, so we couldn’t actually see the full moon, though I think most of us were looking for it. Hopefully the next class will be on a clear night, so you can look up and see that big beautiful bright full moon!

Free Yoga Boston: The Street Chestnut Hill

Free yoga class at The Street Chestnut Hill.

This morning I went to my first free outdoor yoga class of the season. Yay!

It was a 9:30am class at The Street Chestnut Hill with lululemon. The classes are almost every Sunday through the end of September.

There is an Eventbrite page to sign up in advance, but I arrived a bit late and just joined in with the class. There was a lot of room to spread out my mat and move around. I’m not sure that any tickets were checked at the beginning of the class.

Since the mall wasn’t opened yet, there was plenty of parking right near where the class was being held. The weather was perfect and I enjoyed the class.

It was a quick drive to Chestnut Hill from Quincy, taking Route 128 to Route 9, because it was a Sunday morning. There was a bit of traffic on my way home, but not too much. I’ll definitely go to this class again. It’s a great way to start off Sunday and I like trying out different classes.

The Street and YogaWorks will host what looks to be once a month free yoga classes in the evenings, called Yoga Under The Stars. The next one is Wednesday, July 17th, so you should probably sign up soon if you want to go!

Free Yoga Boston (October 2018 – May 2019)

There aren’t as many free yoga classes in the Boston area during the fall, winter and spring. But there are still quite a few!

Since this list covers so many months, it will be updated as I have more information. The current list has classes that are year round and for the winter. Please let me know if you have any corrections and/or tips!

Click the links for details about current dates, etc. The Marathon Sports Sunday classes seem to not happen each week. The lululemon Sunday classes may not be yoga every week.

Many branches of the Boston Public Library have free yoga classes on different days. Take a look at the website for details. The Hands to Heart Center classes listed below are ongoing.
