Do you love yoga? Do you love spending summer evenings at Gas Works Park? Do you love free activities? If you answered yes to any one of those questions, you should check out Yoga in the Park. Every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. from now until September 22, you can join other Seattleites in a free one-hour yoga class at Gasworks Park.
Ready to view the Seattle skyline while in downward dog? Read on for all the information you need to participate in Yoga in the Park!
Yoga in the Park is a collaborative effort by Yerbana (they craft brew yerba mate in Seattle) and Bala Yoga. Every summer Thursday a different Seattle yoga instructor will lead the crowd in an hour-long flow. This isn’t Yoga in the Park’s first year, so they have made some thoughtful improvements for this summer such as an upgraded speaker system.
If you’re not experienced in yoga but still want to try it out, this is the perfect opportunity. This is Seattle’s largest weekly yoga gathering and every participant has their own level of experience. Everyone is welcome, whether your yoga practice is advanced or just beginning. You can always modify a pose to make it work for you and your body.
This is a free event and you don’t have to sign up beforehand, so feel free to just show up every Thursday! There is a limited amount of yoga mats available for rent so we recommend bringing your own if possible, as well as plenty of water and anything else you typically like to have on-hand for a yoga session. There is parking available in the Gasworks Park lot, as well as street parking.
There’s nothing like wrapping up a long week with some gentle movement and community connection in a beautiful setting. In case you haven’t been to Gas Works Park, you should know that it has one of the best views of the Seattle skyline. After yoga, you could stay in the park and enjoy a sunset picnic. You can also find many incredible restaurants in the neighborhood (we recommend Pablo y Pablo!).
