Yoga at Millennium Park

On the Great Lawn of the Pritzker Pavilion, nestled between the lake and the Loop, you can strike up a downward facing dog and breathe deep. Wait. Working out in the park? Oh yes. Millennium Park sponsors free yoga sessions at 8:00 each Saturday morning, followed up by a pilates session at 9:00– each workout lasts 45 minutes and you’ve got that huge futuristic metal thing to look at and fresh air to fill your lungs.

If 8 or 9 is way too early, you could join in on the hip hop workout at 10, led by the Culture Shock Dance Troupe.

When you’re done you can ramble around the gardens & check out your sweaty reflection on the underside of the Bean–or even get soaked in the collosal sculptures that screen close-up shots of people’s faces and double as water-gushing fountains.

    That sounds like a beautiful place to practice the different branches of yoga. There are few things better and more relaxing then practicing yoga outside with nature. The way it is meant to be practiced.
