Join us for our annual community outdoor donation Bikram Yoga class! All the Bikram Yoga studios across Michigan are helping to organize this class. The outdoor class will be beginner-friendly and family-friendly.
Please note the Farmington Hills & Troy studios will be CLOSED all day June 20th.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? This outdoor class celebrates yoga, health, and community. We are also coming together as a Michigan yoga community to celebrate International Yoga Day. Yoga teachers and practitioners around the world will be celebrating International Yoga Day as declared by the United Nations on this same weekend (specifically June 21st)... it is cosmic coincidence and symbolic that our outdoor yoga class will literally be taking place on a World Map! (Google Earth view here).
$5 DONATION: This donation is per person and goes to Detroit Riverfront Conservancy. Kids 16 & under are FREE. 100% of your donation will be passed on to the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, and there are no refunds if you can't make the class.
PRE-REGISTER: Please sign-up in advance at your local Michigan Bikram Yoga studio to help us get an accurate head count. If you can't pre-register at a studio, you can still pay the $5 donation at the check-in tables before the class. Farmington Hill and Troy students can signup online here.
PARKING & CLASS LOCATION: Park at the Beaubien Place Garage, 521 Atwater St, Detroit, MI 48226 (Google Maps link here). To get to the yoga class from the parking deck, walk down Atwater Street to the GM Plaza with the World Map across from Andiamo's restaurant. The plaza is visible on the photo below.
