Everyone could use some time to destress and unwind these days. Luckily for us, Miami offers all kinds of community yoga classes and we rounded up the best spots the next time you want to share your love for the practice or kick off your very own yoga journey.
Keep in mind that you may need to make a reservation to these yoga classes. Make sure to BYOM (Bring Your Own Mat) and a bottle of water to stay hydrated. But most importantly: Have a fun and meditative time!
1. 420 Space Yoga
Where: Club Space, 34 NE 11th Street
When: Saturdays at 4:20 p.m.
We’re not kidding when we say you could do yoga at the club. But it’s not quite what you think. Club Space is definitely the place to be for high-energy nightlife, but that ambience takes a completely different turn on Saturday afternoons. Let the fresh air and sunlight on Space’s terrace relieve you of your stresses while you follow the poses by Yogi Tiffany April Levy and guest instructors. Vibes and background sounds are also provided by DJ Lucaz.
2. Lincoln Road Community Yoga
Where: Euclid Courtyard, 690 Lincoln Road
When: Sundays at 10 a.m.
If you’re in South Beach, join other yogis in front of the Lincoln Center at 690 Lincoln Road for a free Sunday morning stretch guided by local yoga instructors. Classes are open to all skill levels.
3. Full Moon Yoga at Doral Glades Park
Where: Doral Glades Park, 7600 NW 98th Court
When: 7:30 p.m. on select days.
Don’t miss out on free full moon yoga classes outside the lawn overlooking Doral’s newest park by Gaby Mujica. Music for the soul will be played and afterwards, the class will get together to enjoy the moonlight in company.
4. Sunrise Beach Yoga
Where: 1st Street Beach
When: Fridays at 7 a.m.
For early birds who love to practice yoga, this one’s for you. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, these yoga sessions by April May Gardner are the perfect way to welcome the weekend by connecting with the outdoors and the most beautiful sunrise. This is a donation-based class.
5. The Underline
Where: Brickell Backyard Sound Stage, SW 1st Avenue and SW 8th Street
When: Saturdays at 9 a.m.
Part of The Underline’s mission is to promote healthy lifestyles for those in the community and what better way to do that than host flow yoga sessions? Powered by Baptist Health South Florida, these classes are perfect to connect and exercise outdoors. They’re beginner friendly too, and led by Anny Noratto who will provide guided meditation. They ask that you RSVP, arrive 15 minutes before the class start time and consider making a donation to support the programming all year-round.
6. 3rd Street Beach Yoga
Where: By the lifeguard tower at 3rd street and Ocean Drive
When: Every day at 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. (April to October) and 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. (November to March)
We can’t think of anything more relaxing than yoga by the beach, and it’s a plus when you’re catching the sunrise or the sunset. Held 365 days a year, switch out your yoga mat for a towel and listen to the sound of the waves. The tradition goes back to 1998 when newly-certified yoga teacher October Rose began her day practicing yoga at the exact location. Over time, other yogis joined her and, before she knew it, she was leading classes every morning and evening. She has since moved to India, but several instructors have kept the practice going in her honor. Because they have no other funding other than donations from students that go directly to the teachers, cash donations are heavily emphasized.
7. Acro Yoga Jams
Where: South Pointe Park, 1 Washington Avenue
When: Wednesdays and Sundays at sunset
Acroyoga combines yoga and acrobatics and it looks just like it sounds. You can participate in the practice (or any kind of yoga — all movement is welcome!) among the skyscrapers in the beautiful green park or sit back and catch the sunset for a relaxing session. For more information, click here.
8. Yoga Mornings at SoundScape Park
Where: SoundScape Park, 400 17th Street
When: 9 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month (October through April)
Take a pause and share relaxation with the community at the New World Center’s monthly vinyasa yoga classes, presented by Jackson Health System. During the season, meditation teacher Marlene Arzola will guide you through all the steps to find strength, balance and inner peace.
