No longer are yogis content to twist themselves at a yoga studio. Yogis are branching out, and twisting themselves all over the place. So if you’re a yogi looking to expand your horizons (quite literally), we put together this nifty list of where you can do yoga in unusual places. This list focuses on reoccurring events that take place outside of yoga studios, but keep an eye on your favorite studios for the occasional, unusual yoga session with puppies or kittens — there’s even an upcoming Harry Potter-themed “wand yoga” class at the Free Public Library on Saturday, July 28 at 6:30 and 8 p.m. If you know of others, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
21c Museum Hotel
700 W. Main St.
$5 | 9:30 a.m.
These Saturday yoga sessions take place in the art gallery of 21c, and are led by certified yoga teachers from 502 Power Yoga. Attendees are welcome to bring their own mats, but mats are available. Space is limited, and you’ll want to get a spot in front of a cool piece of art, so be sure to arrive early.
715 W. Main St.
Donations | 5-6 p.m.
Yoga instructor Leigh Anne Albrechta hosts these Sunday yoga sessions in the KMAC Museum galleries. Each session begins with a short meditation, and attendees are asked to make a donation to pay for the class. There are no extra mats, so be sure to bring your own and water.
Goodwood Brewing Co.
636 E. Main St.
Prices and times vary
Goodwood Brewing is going yoga crazy with two yoga classes a week. On Mondays, it’s Metal Monday Yoga with instructor and metal god warrior, Denise Ingle. The class is promoted as “a fun high-energy class followed with some beer drinking!” Classes begin at 6 p.m., the cost is donation-based and attendees are asked to bring a mat and a beach towel because classes take place on the brewery floor. And on Sundays at Goodwood, Ingle hosts Poses & Beermosas, a less-intense, hourlong class that ends with a delicious beermosa. Classes are $10 if you want the beermosa, and $5 if you want to just stretch.
