For me, sometimes a $24 workout class feels totally reasonable — usually right after pay day. Then there are days when I’m like “Okay, dear self, you can go to that $24 workout class OR you can eat something besides beans for the next week.” And if you’re better at budgeting than I am, I applaud you — but still, doesn’t everyone love a free workout every now and then? Yes. The answer is yes. So below, where to find free or pay-what-you-can workouts around Philly every day of the week. Your wallet can give us a nice big hug later. Read more »
Will you trudge through the snow for a workout you have to pay 20 bucks for this weekend? Probably not. But Three Queens Yoga at 410 Monroe Street is putting on an open house this Saturday that just might get you to strap on your snow boots and leave the house: They have a whopping seven free yoga and fitness classes on the schedule Saturday. Aaaaand there will be free Sip-N-Glo juice on deck. Yes, please! Read more »
I am currently cursing myself for not toting my yoga bag with me to work today: The lovely news just came in that Mind, Body, and Spirits — the $20 yoga-and-drinks event that goes down at Hotel Palomar and Hotel Monaco every Monday evening — will be free at Rittenhouse’s Hotel Palomar every remaining Monday this January. So you can count on free yoga AND free wine (or a free featured cocktail, if that’s more your jam) every Monday throughout the month of January. Yes, please! Read more »
Remember last year, when New Year’s Eve happened to fall on a Wednesday, the same night the Art Museum usually hosts pay-what-you-can yoga, and they hosted a giant pay-what-you-wish New Year’s Eve Yoga White Party? Well, New Year’s Eve falls on a Thursday this year, so the big Yoga White Party isn’t exactly a New Year’s Eve celebration this time around, but don’t you worry: It will still be just as festive!

So, remember how we told you about the new CorePower Yoga studio coming to Walnut Street this fall? Well, they’ve yet to open their doors (they’re aiming for an early-November opening) but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your yoga on with them — for free, at that! Tomorrow evening, the studio is hosting a free hourlong class at Dilworth Park.

If Yoga on the Pier’s October 31st end date has you down in the dumps, good news: It looks like Yoga on the Pier won’t be completely shutting down for the winter months this year. Eeeee! They’ve teamed up with Old City’s Fearless Athletics, which is just a short walk from Race Street Pier, to offer a free monthly class throughout the colder seasons, starting November 8th. Note: If I could end this paragraph with hands-clapping emojis, I would. Read more »
As some of you might remember, we were pretty bummed when we heard Lululemon wouldn’t be bringing Wanderlust in the City to Philly this year. But consider our tears dried: The Lululemon Walnut Street store is hosting a new yoga-filled fest called Revival this October — and it sounds ah-mazing.

Sad news, friends: This Tuesday is the very last Be Well Philly Summer Yoga Flow class of the year. I know, I’m holding back tears just thinking about it. But the good news is, we’re going out in a big way: The class, which will be led by the wonderful (and butt-kicking!) Mariel Freeman of DIG Yoga, will be taught with DJ Sylo spinning the soundtrack. So it’ll basically be a post-work yoga party. Not a bad way to spend your Tuesday afternoon, eh? Read more »
A big round of applause to everyone who came out to the very first sweat session of Be Well Philly’s Summer’s Yoga Flow, our free summer yoga series, at the Comcast Center Outdoor Plaza last night! (And a big thank you to the weather gods for not raining all over our yoga mats, too.) We can’t think of a better way to end a workday than with downward dogs in the sunshine, and we’re glad you all feel the same.
