Summer Yoga Fun in the Sun

Take your booty outdoors & strike a pose under the bright, blue sky.

Hello! Happy Travel Yoga Lover’s month!
All of May, here at The Exploring Yogini, we’re going to be chatting about the best things in life- travel & yoga.

Welcome to week #2. Today, we’re going to focus more on traveling outside of your comfort zone. Explore yourself & the world around you by trying new yoga activities this summer!


Before we get started, I just wanted to let you know about our email opt-in. Sign up for our newsletter & receive a free-custom yoga sequence for travelers. We also send out tons of travel planning advice, recommendations, & yogic inspiration. Come join the fun!

Done signing up for your free yoga sequence? Perfect.

Now, let’s reel it back in.

Here are the special yoga classes to keep your eye out for this summer!

1. Groove Under the Sun at a Summer Yoga Festival

Yoga festivals are full of live music, outdoor classes, exploration workshops, & so much more! The length of time varies per festival. Some festivals are 1-day, a weekend, or sometimes they can be an entire.

The price also varies. 1-day festivals are around $50 U.S.D. & then the longer festival’s price varies.

If you cannot afford attending one, consider volunteering. You’d have the opportunity to attend some of the events & meet a bunch of people! Find the volunteer details & application on the yoga festival’s website.

2. Groove on the Water with Paddle Board Yoga

Imagine yourself balancing on a surfboard on a beautiful lake, . Now, picture yourself moving through a yoga sequence! Sounds tricky yet exciting. am I right?
Don’t worry, you can keep your tank top & leggings on- no swimsuit is required! Find classes by Googling “SUP Yoga + Your cities name”.

3. Take your practice outside by finding a studio that does rooftop or patio yoga.

Yoga continually forces you to leave your comfort zone. You may be comfortable with your home studio. Challenge yourself by practicing yoga someplace new & full of strangers. A studio where yoga doesn’t typically exist.
Many yoga studios will pair with restaurants & breweries. The fun and unique yoga classes have catchy names like “Om Brewers” & “Happy Hour Yoga.”
Find these classes by following Yoga Studio Facebook pages in your city.

4. Enjoy Yoga at the Park

Envision yourself practicing yoga under the sun, with the wind blowing across your body, & birds chirping in your ears… These classes are chill & full of fun. I’m pretty confident that life doesn’t get any better than that.

Want to let your inner adventurer soar? These atypical classes are a great way to explore new places in your city! They’re usually held at art museums, piers, farms & many other unique locations!

The best way to find these is by following various yoga studios & yoga teachers on social media.
