Outdoor & No-cost Classes Near Salt Lake City

For building strength, increasing flexibility, and giving yourself peace of mind, there’s no better place to be than a yoga class. But especially during the warm months of summer and early fall, being stuck in a studio sounds much less appealing than going outside and soaking up the sunshine. Fortunately, there are plenty of local alternatives that allow you to enjoy Utah’s gorgeous outdoor environment while still getting your Crow pose on.

Here are a few great choices for getting in serious mat time under a clear blue sky. (And, as a bonus, we’ve thrown in a few opportunities to try out yoga, whether indoors or out, without spending a dime.)
