For those of you who don’t already know, I’m a bit of a fitness junkie. I’m always looking for new and creative ways to get a good workout. On the flip side, I really like to incorporate yoga (which is a workout in and of itself) into my schedule at least once a week to help keep me limber.
I’m also always looking for ways to save a few dollars, but still get out and practice. Luckily, I have the good fortune of living in a city where yoga is promoted and provided for free in many different locations to help build a more united community.
Let this serve as a guide for you to go and get your downward dog and pigeon on all summer long, and it’s all free!
INDOOR YOGA EVENTS
East 4th Street Yoga: House of Blues, Downtown Cleveland. Classes run from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. each Saturday. Zenworks Yoga hosts this donation based class each week.
Lululemon Community Yoga: Eton Plaza, Chagrin. Lulu Lemon sponsors free yoga classes in their stores, taught by various teachers around the community. Check their website for their “Sweat with Us” series for a complete listing.
Bottoms Up! Yoga & Brew: Cleveland Heights – University Heights Public Library, University Heights. This limited 4 week series throughout January 2020 features free classes at the library! Check back for updated free offerings.
OUTDOOR YOGA EVENTS
Believe in CLE: Downtown Cleveland. This free event typically only happens once a year at the end of August/beginning of September at the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Enjoy a free vinyasa class, live music and the company of fellow yogis! Check their website for upcoming events.
North Coast Namaste: Voinovich Park, Cleveland. Classes are Tuesday evenings from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. right on the lake! Yoga runs from June through September and features instructors from all over the city. I can’t think of a better way to utilize Voinovich Park!
INEXPENSIVE YOGA OPTIONS
Yoga Strong: While not free, Yoga Strong is the next best thing. Located in downtown Cleveland (and Canton), they offer classes as low as $8 per class. The $8 is if you pay cash as a drop-in. Otherwise, classes are $10 each if you book ahead of time. Such a steal!
