Fitness Adventure: Yoga in the Park

FREEdOM Flow Miami Fl Free outdoor yoga classes

On Wednesday I went to my first outdoor yoga class. It was such a relaxing experience! Hearing little kids in the park and passing traffic somehow made me more relaxed then when I am in a studio.


Every Monday and Wednesday from 6-7:15 in Riviera Park in Coral Gables, Florida there is a free yoga class called FREEdOM Flow. It is designed so all levels, even beginners, can join and follow along. My class in particular was taught by Barbara who normally teaches at the Dharma Studio. On that particular day Barbara’s class involved a lot of balancing poses. I was even able to do the crow pose for a few seconds which I’ve never been able to do before. Don’t worry though if the crow pose looks scary, there are modifications that help you eventually build up to crow.

There was a nice balance of men in the class, which I was very surprised about. The majority of the classes I’ve been too would have one or two men at most. The music Barbara picked was also very nice, including some songs from the Across the Universe soundtrack.  It was a nice change of pace.

Would you ever do an outdoor yoga class? What is your favorite pose?
