11 Upcoming Philly Yoga Events That Will Get You Out of the Studio
Yogis, this is YOUR month! Yup, you heard me: September is National Yoga Month. To celebrate, we’ve put together your guide to a bunch of yoga classes happening throughout the month that will get you on your mat outside of the studio. Don’t get us wrong: We’ve got a lot of love for yoga studios, but it never hurts to mix it up! (And add a little wine to your practice.)
Below, you will find 11 yoga classes happening around town this month that take place outside of a yoga studio — we’ve got parks, rooftops, bars, wineries and more on the line up. Take your pick and try something new to celebrate. But be sure to note that all of these classes are BYO-mat, water, towels, etc.
