For those of us who can't afford to pay $50 for the Sky-High yoga experience with Equinox this May, there are some free options for outdoor yoga in New York City. Looking for an evening class during the week? Head over to Brooklyn Bridge Park or Bryant Park. Want to stretch out during the weekend? Socrates Sculpture Park, situated along the East River in Queens, hosts Saturday and Sunday morning classes. These free yoga classes begin this month and continue throughout the summer.

Free Weekend Vinyasa Yoga in Socrates Sculpture Park (Queens)

Classes were set to begin on May 7, 2022, but the Saturday classes were canceled due to the stormy weather over the weekend.
