3x outdoor yoga in Utrecht
Outdoor yoga is the recipe for relaxation: turning to nature for meditation, yoga, or movement. And you don’t always need to travel far for it. In the summer months, yoga classes are given in different parks and nature areas. Escape the business of the city for a moment and dive into an oasis of tranquility. In this post, we’re listing the best outdoor yoga locations in and around Utrecht.
1. Utrecht – Yin yoga in Julianapark
Yin yoga is becoming increasingly popular thanks to its peaceful character. It lends itself well to being practised outside, because you can get even deeper into your practice through the combination of stillness and nature.
Every Saturday from 10.00 – 11.15, Inside Yoga Utrecht offers a yoga class in Julianapark, including a cup of tea after the lesson!
