Of course yoga always rocks, and this weekend it is going to rock Lincoln Park in Cleveland, Ohio!

If you’re not familiar with Yoga Rocks the Park, they are live music and yoga gatherings set in beautiful parks across the United States. The goal of the events is to bring together like-minded people to connect through yoga, wellness, and music to discover our shared enlightened nature. These events have been held this summer in Boulder, Denver, Milwaukee, Omaha, Phoenix and CLEVELAND!

The previous events this summer were on Saturdays when I was busy teaching beach yoga, so I’m super excited to announce that there will be an event this Sunday, September 16, at Lincoln Park in Cleveland! This Yoga Rocks the Park event will include an all-levels yoga class led by Linda Stevenson and Rebecca Tighe from 10:30 to 11:45 AM, which will be followed by all the music, food, and fun of the 14th Annual Tremont Arts & Cultural Festival. Jennifer Martinez Atzberger will lead a special FREE yoga class for children at 2:00 PM as part of the festival’s children’s village.

If you are new to yoga and want to give it a try, this class will be accessible to beginners. If you’ve never been to Tremont, this event is a great way to check out this cool Cleveland neighborhood.

The cost to attend the class is $10 if you pre-register at the Yoga Rocks the Park Cleveland webpage, or is $15 at the event. You can feel good knowing that 25% of your class fee goes to Colorado-based non-profit Yoga World Reach, which offers yoga and alternative therapy programs to those in need both locally and around the globe, and another 25% goes to Urban Lotus Youth Yoga, a non-profit organization that brings yoga to at-risk youth in the Cleveland area.

If you have never practiced yoga outdoors, do yourself a favor and get your yoga mats out to Lincoln Park this Sunday! As if doing yoga outside in a beautiful setting with a bunch of cool Cleveland yogis is not incentive enough, you can also look forward to free samples of Vita CoCo pure coconut water.
