The spirit of Detroit is evident all around the city, but so is the mind and body! The best outdoor yoga in Detroit is giving you a reason to release…all the sweat as we near the end of a sunny summer. Most of these events are free, which is even better. Perhaps you’ve already got a good exercise routine going, but perhaps you’d like a change of setting.
Detroitisit rounded up a list of outdoor yoga in Detroit because we want to get the most out of the warm months and feel good about ourselves. Several are free and the rest are affordable. See what’s left! Empower yourself and appreciate the simple moments while viewing the city in a new light.
There’s always something festive going on at the zoo for the holidays. Did you ever think about doing downward dog and warrior poses with a certified instructor while surrounded by nature and the animals? Consider yourself at home! On select Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays in July and August, each Yoga at the Zoo session will include a meditative flow appropriate for all skill levels. Be present in front of an animal habitat as you also discuss the featured animal. Tickets are $25 per session for members and $30 per session for the general public. Each ticket includes Yoga at the Zoo admission, parking, and a complimentary admission ticket to the Detroit Zoo to be handed out upon completion of the session. Click HERE for tickets.
