Where to do Free Yoga In NYC

Yoga doesn’t have to come with the baggage of added costs and hidden fees the way gyms often do – especially come summertime. Ease some of the stress that comes with subway delays and a busy NYC social life. Practice mindfulness and self-care any day of the week at these free yoga classes around the city. Plus, check out all the parks and outdoor spaces with free yoga pop-ups all season long.


Upper Terrace, Manhattan

Suns out, sun salutations out at Bryant Park this summer! The 2018 yoga season is made possible by the generosity of KeVita®, a leading manufacturer of fermented probiotic and kombucha beverages. A supporting sponsor, Gaiam, a yoga, fitness and wellness brand, will donate 1,200 yoga mats for participants to use throughout the season. The mats are provided free of charge for anyone who does not have one. However, they are collected at the end of the session.



The twice-weekly classes will be held Tuesday mornings on the Upper Terrace 10 AM-11 AM, and Thursday evenings on the Lawn 6 PM-7PM. All classes are free and open to the public.
