San Diego Outdoor Yoga

Posted on June 23rd, 2017

What’s more SoCal than outdoor yoga!?

Yoga is proven awesome for both body and mind, and though it’s been around for thousands of years, it’s hotter than ever! Like Madonna, Miley Cyrus, and mom jeans, this 2017 Top Fitness Trend just keeps reinventing itself. Bliss out with relaxing yin yoga, #doWerk with flow lift, or if you’re lucky enough to be in San Diego… take your practice outdoors!

San Diego Outdoor Yoga:

Studios with Outdoor Space

La Jolla wins the day for studios that offer onsite, outdoor classes!

  • Check out beachside Riffs Studio in Bird Rock for serene outdoor yoga with live music and an ocean breeze. Or as the studio likes to say, “Bali in your backyard!”
  • Head to La Jolla Cove for rooftop aerial yoga with an ocean view at Trilogy Sanctuary. (I mean, if you have the opportunity to do flying yoga, in the sunshine, overlooking the Pacific, how do you even say no?) Grab a yummy snack or smoothie at Trilogy’s organic, vegan café.
