About Yoga in the Park
Yoga in Parks

Des Moines Parks and Recreation and UnityPoint Health Des Moines invite you to enjoy your Saturday mornings by participating in a free weekly yoga session at Gray's Lake this summer.  Maximize your stress relief by practicing yoga on the southeast lawn.

The class will be from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. and will be held every Saturday beginning June 7 through September 27.

Local volunteer instructors lead each session, which means you’ll have a different yoga experience each week!  You are encouraged to bring a mat or a towel as well as some water and clothes you can move in. No registration for the class is required……..just show up ready to relax, release and enjoy.


Classes will not take place in the event of rain. We will only post on social media if Yoga is canceled. If nothing has been posted, please assume classes will take place. Please continue to check our website, Facebook and Twitter for cancelations. Remember, you can know before you go with our text messaging notification service. Click here for more information.


Parking - Here's a Map to show where parking is available at Gray's Lake for Yoga in the Park.  The parking lot along Thomas Beck Road is no longer available for parking. 

Gray’s Lake Park is easily accessible via Des Moines’ extensive trail network. Due to the popularity of the program, we encourage participants to walk, run or bike to Yoga.
