The Sculpture Garden
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 a variety of Des Moines Parks.
We’re shaking it up this season and taking Saturday Yoga on the road. The season starts on June 4 at Gray’s Lake on the southeast lawn, and in July classes will move north to enjoy the beauty of Union Park by the Rocket Slide. In August, guests will have the opportunity to admire the art work up close when sessions move to the Pappajohn Sculpture Park downtown, and the season will end in September back at Gray’s Lake southeast lawn. Join us every Saturday, June 4 through September 26, for free outdoor yoga classes from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m.
The classes, taught by volunteer instructors from around the Metro Area, are perfect for all skill levels, from curious beginner to advanced yogi. 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 cancelled. If nothing has been posted, please assume classes will take place. Please continue to check our website, Facebook and Twitter for cancellations.
