During the summer in Vancouver when the sun is shining and the days are long and hot, it’s pretty hard to drag yourself into a yoga studio. Luckily, there are several options around Vancouver that offer outdoor yoga classes that lets you breathe in the fresh air and practice your sun salutations under the actual sun.

We’ve found four yoga classes around Vancouver that offer weekly outdoor yoga classes that are 100% free! These free outdoor yoga classes in Vancouver are a great option for beginners, experts, and those who just want to get outside and do a little stretching.

1. Yoga by the Kits Beach Pool (Kitsilano) – website

Organized by the grassroots group, Kits Space, this 100% free, beachfront yoga is held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7:00 – 8:00 pm until August 31st. All you need to bring is a mat or beach towel, and no previous experience is necessary. These classes are free, but tips are welcome.

Last summer, the community gathered 3 times a week and sometimes up to 75 enthusiastic yogis flowed together in the sunshine! In 2014 they offered 37 free classes to 1080 people and 2015 is likely going to be even more popular!

The Kits Beach Yoga classes are held between the pool and the tennis courts by the big trees, facing the water in Kitsilano Beach Park.
