It might not feel like it right now, but spring IS coming, friends! Malik Wilson, the Philly yoga instructor behind the beloved outdoor Yoga on the Pier classes held at Race Street Pier in the warmer months, just let us know the classes will be making a comeback on Saturday, April 2nd. In case you were wondering just how many days away that is, we counted: 38. Just 38 days until you’ll be getting your downward dog on under the sun — for free!

The free classes will run from Saturday, April 2nd through the first weekend of November. And yes: Like last year, there will be classes held every single day of the week. (Note: While the classes are free to join in on, donations are very welcome.) The weekly schedule for the BYO-mat classes looks like this: Monday through Friday at 7 a.m., Monday through Thursday at 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 9:30 a.m.

This year, they’ve also added monthly Twilight Yoga classes, coinciding with the full moon. Those will happen at 8:30 p.m. on May 21st, June 20th, July 9th, August 18th, September 16th and October 16th. Malik tells us they’ll also be holding some sort of First Friday launch party, so details to come on that.

Now, next time rain or wind smacks you across the face, just think of all the sun-splashed savasanas you’ll soon be enjoying. Eeeee!
