1. Get outside. Check your local parks & recreations site for classes, workshops, and events being held in your area. Most often they are free of charge on a first come, first serve basis. Also, definitely look into free summer solstice (first day of summer) yoga events in your area. Usually, it’s a pretty big gathering of yogis welcoming the season with lots of sun salutations. And, if you’re in New York, join us at Solstice in Times Square Athleta “Mind Over Madness” Yoga Event. You’ll join thousands of people from all over the world as we ring in summer.
2. Go shopping & do yoga. Lululemon. Athleta. Reebok. And the list goes on. You can find free weekly yoga classes at many of their stores. These classes take place in the store space and usually, there’s private shopping time (and often a little discount) for you to pick up that shiny new yoga mat or whatever else suits your fancy. Check their sites and watch for community class listings on their weekly emails if you subscribe.
3. Get a free trial pass. Check with your local gyms and even yoga studios to see if they offer a free trial pass or class. Most gyms will offer a day or even a week to try out their classes and facilities.
