Yoga in the Park is back in 2021!
Once again, you can come out to Woodruff Park for 60 minutes of FREE yoga each Saturday morning — through Oct. 30th.
As an added bonus this year, you’ll get a FREE frozen pop from Mocha Pops at the end of class.
Classes take place on the lawn in the center of the park, from 9 to 10 a.m. on Saturdays from May through the end of October.
While yoga classes are free to attend, you must submit your RSVP in advance.
Yoga classes are open to all ages and experience levels. This is a kid-friendly event. Just bring your own mat and water bottle.
According to the Yoga in the Park event page:
These fun, accessible, and meditative practices will leave you feeling peaceful yet invigorated–and part of a great community. Vinyasa flow is yoga that incorporates sun salutations throughout the practice, so we will be passing through infamous downward facing dog, using our arms to chaturanga throughout practice, and matching breath with movement. The flows are good for beginners and advanced practitioners alike, so come one, come all!
The class may be canceled in the event of bad weather. You’ll be notified of a cancellation through the contact info you supplied in your RSVP.
About the venue
Woodruff Park is located at 91 Peachtree Street NW, in the Fairlie-Poplar district. It is bordered by Edgewood Avenue, Peachtree Street, Auburn Avenue, and Park Place.
This six-acre park is a natural gathering space for a diverse cross-section of Atlantans and a key starting point for exploring downtown Atlanta and its surrounding neighborhoods. Surrounding buildings include government offices, commerce, and Georgia State University.
Originally known as Central City Park, Woodruff Park was renovated through a generous donation from Robert W. Woodruff, former president of The Coca-Cola Company. Today, the park offers playgrounds, fountains, and a variety of facilities and services.
The park is patrolled daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., through a partnership between the Atlanta Police Department and GSU Police, making it a very safe venue. The Downtown Clean Team helps with park maintenance.
Each year, Woodruff Park hosts a variety of festivals, events, and performances, including the WoodRUFF Bark Dog Parade and the annual German Bierfest.
Woodruff Park is easily accessible via both bus and rail. Two Atlanta Streetcar stops—Park Place and Woodruff Park—are located in the park. The park is also home to a Relay Bike Share hub.
