"The beauty of Yoga Rocks the Park is the simplicity of it. When we connect our feet to the earth and our eyes to the sky we are reminded of our playful nature, and the opportunity to be less serious, and more free."
The Yoga Rocks the Park Community has organically grown from 30 yogis in Denver, to a collective of over 25,000 International yogis, yoga teachers, community members, musicians, yoga studios, festival partners, non-profit organizations and mindful businesses who believe in the power of coming together with like-minded friends on a common mission --- to grow the practice of yoga, give back to our communities, bring light to inspiring yoga teachers, emerging musicians and innovations in wellness --- and most importantly, to come together with our family and friends to play, move, love and celebrate each other in the sunshine in the presence of Mother Nature.
Today, with a beloved, passionate team of 20+ locally-based Event Directors in cities throughout the U.S., we collectively celebrate our own communities and play together on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer with our friends... sometimes 1000+ of them! Each of our 20 Yoga Rocks the Park event series was brought to its local community by a like-minded friend and is graciously supported in many beautiful ways by their own community. From one event 7 years ago with 30 yogis, to 150 events and 25,000 yogis in 2014... we think it's working! :) Come play with us at the park!

Each locally managed Yoga Rocks the Park event features an outdoor, all-levels 75-minute yoga class (beginners welcome!) featuring your city's most inspiring local and national yoga teachers accompanied by live music or DJ with some of the top and emerging musicians in the country. Parents are invited to bring their little yogis for Camp YRP, a kid’s yoga class designed specifically for ages 3-10. Each Yoga Rocks the Park event also provides unique opportunities to support local businesses within your community in the YRP Wellness Vendor Village.

We collaborate with local teachers in communities across the country who view yoga as more than just a great workout, and see it as a vehicle for people to find true peace and connection in their lives. Together with the musicians, they collectively create a sacred space each weekend for you to deepen your practice in the sunshine.

A live yoga soundtrack provided each week by some of the top and emerging musicians in the country. Throughout the summer you will experience some of your favorite past YRP artists as well as giving the stage to new local emerging musicians in each of our cities --- one of our favorite things to do!
