If your yoga routine is anything but exciting, or you’re looking for a little “om” in your life, then check out this article brought to us by our friends at 7×7. They’ve uncovered some fun non-traditional ways to experience yoga in the city from outside yoga classes to partner yoga (hello, date night!) to even yoga with some sweet musical tunes. Namaste!
Take it Outside
Practicing yoga en plein air is a huge change of pace from the confines of a pristine studio where cloying incense fills the room and wood floors provide a steady platform. In the urban landscape, you’ve got uneven ground and the weather to contend with, but you also have dramatic views to keep things interesting.
Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m., Hiking Yoga vinyasa teachers lead a $20, 90-minute class that takes all levels on a city hike from the Ferry Building to Coit Tower. Stops along the way for mini asana sequences let you soak in the bay and SF’s vistas from all angles. Imagine looking out on North Beach from Triangle and easing into a seated twist to get a 180-degree take on downtown. Leave your mat behind, and dress in layers. One Ferry Building (at Market).
