There’s no better way to see Chicago than with a Shoreline Sightseeing tour, but you can get up close and personal with the city while toning your body with outdoors yoga. Check out the best places to do yoga in Chicago this summer!
Yoga At Lincoln Park Zoo
If you’ve ever wanted to check your cobra stance against a real cobra or show off your downward facing dog to an African wild dog, try a yoga class at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Enjoy the beauty of nature and a view of the city skyline under the Nature Boardwalk, which allows you to feel connected with the outside while protecting you from harsh sun or rain. Learn new poses with adult yoga, or take your little one to parent and toddler yoga with activities like guided exploration and story time.
Butterfly Haven Yoga
If the climate isn’t right for yoga at the zoo, try a class at the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. This warm, tropical building features a gorgeous backdrop for yoga with flowering plants, a soothing waterfall, and happy butterflies to delight the eye. This Saturday morning workout is sure to leave you refreshed, serene, and ready to take on the weekend.
Millennium Park Summer Workouts
On Saturdays, the Great Lawn in Chicago’s famous Millennium Park hosts free summer workouts from 7 AM to 11 AM to help you get your weekend off to a healthy start. Choose from sunrise yoga with a wide variety of instructors and yoga styles, or sleep in a little and enjoy a brisk cardio workout, Pilates, and even Zumba. Your workout will be accompanied by live world music and drumming to motivate you and keep you on track! Millennium Park is fully accessible to all patrons, with facilities for those using wheelchairs and assistive listening devices.
Stand Up Paddleobard Yoga
For a special challenge you’ll never forget, try Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga at Montrose Beach! Instructor Mary Lou Cerami shows you how to use the paddleboard to enjoy the waves as you practice your favorite yoga stances. Paddleboard yoga helps you develop flexibility and balance, and it’s easy for anyone—even if you don’t have paddleboard experience. It’s a healthy treat on a hot day! You can even bring your dog to paddleboarding class on Friday mornings for a real challenge.
Sun and Moon Beach Yoga
There are few things more soothing than yoga on the beach, and you can enjoy the peaceful sight of a gorgeous sunrise or sunset with Sun and Moon on North Avenue Beach. This vinyasa yoga class is held seven days a week during the season.
