FREEDOM YOGA in Millennium Park

at the beautiful site of my DVD!!

Join me for my summer tradition of yoga in the park on the Pritzker Lawn.  All levels welcome and classes are complimentary from the City of Chicago!

Learn more about Millennium Park Summer Workouts here!

 

There is a certain magic to Chicago on Saturday mornings in the summer: the sun rising magnificently over the lake, the city sleepy and still before the tourists begin to bustle around downtown. For the past few years, I’ve had the honor of teaching yoga in the heart of this world-class city, in the famous Millennium Park. This free event allows everyone to enjoy the immense benefits of yoga. There is a sacredness to this practice: Rising early. Rolling out your yoga mat in the green dewy grass. Taking in the fresh early morning air and feeling the crispness of the new day.  Sensing into the wide-open expanse of the park and the bright blue sky above.  Joining together with fellow Chicagoans in contemplative movement. Breathing together. Stretching, strengthening, discovering balance and even maybe a new friend.  Exhilaration and excitement give way to centered calm. I can feel it now!

Thanks to my parents’ encouragement I recently realized my dream of creating Freedom Yoga in Millennium Park as a DVD so all could enjoy this special practice year-round.  Three guided classes show real people doing yoga. Each person is so wonderfully unique and each yogi is free to experience and express the truth of who they are in that moment.

With a new summer upon us, join me in the park. Discover the beauty of yoga. Supported by the earth, armed with curiosity, guided by excellent and precise instruction, you will tune into the magic of your own body and leave more connected to who you truly are.

Step away and stretch out among blissful, like-minded yogis, musicians and activists. Learn from talented yoga teachers, hear vibrant, multi-hued musical performances and take classes in everything from organic farming to fire-throwing. Connect around the campfire at Stonehouse Farm Eco-Retreat & Sanctuary — and be present… the everyday will be there when you get back.

Join me Friday September 4th at 5:00pm for my Joy, Freedom and Love class in which we will celebrate our natural state of joy through exercising loving-kindness, curiosity, patience and gentle persistence. Meditation is awesome - join me Saturday morning at 8:00am for Meditation and You! You will learn the basics of meditation and simple breathing techniques to reduce stress and anxiety and increase clarity and calm. Saturday evening enjoy, Magic Hour Luminosity: Sunset Slow Vinyasa Flow + Spinal Twists. As the setting sun creates luminous light, you too will discover the luminosity within you and around you, twist it out and let it in! 

Check out the festival's website for more information.

Freedom Yoga in Millennium Park

There is a certain magic to Chicago on Saturday mornings in the summer: the sun rising magnificently over the lake, the city sleepy and still before the tourists begin to bustle around downtown. For the past few years, I’ve had the honor of teaching yoga in the heart of this world-class city, in the famous Millennium Park. This free event allows everyone to enjoy the immense benefits of yoga. Join me from 8am-9am on July 4, 11, 18, 25 and August 1 for FREE yoga in Millennium Park! All the details here.
