Bookend your work week with morning yoga on the beach.
North Beach News sponsors free yoga on Mondays and Fridays at 7AM behind the North Beach Band Shell. Instructors in Skanda Yoga lead the 60-minute classes on the sandy area next to volleyball nets.
Stretch your body and breathe in the balmy sea air as the sun rises over the ocean, a privilege in the winter months when the rest of the country is shivering.
The Friday class began in June 2009 and has attracted a dedicated group of regulars from around the neighborhood along with other locals as well as out-of-town visitors. Given the popularity of the Friday class, the Monday class was added in November of last year.
Street parking is plentiful and free at that hour along Ocean Terrace or in the lot on the other side of Collins, between 72nd and 73rd Streets. Bicycle racks are also available near the shower area next to the beach walk.
The class is adapted for the sandy conditions and all levels of practice are welcome to attend. No mats are necessary but the instructors recommend bringing a large beach towel or blanket.
In case of rain, classes are canceled. You can visit our calendar of events to stay updated on the class schedule throughout the year.
When: Mondays and Fridays, 7:00 AM
Where: Bandshell Park 73rd and Collins Ave
