Outdoor Yoga

May - October

How OUTDOOR / INDOOR Classes Work

Each week we'll be offering a number of yoga classes on the spacious back deck at our 9 Samuel Street location.

Classes listed as "OUTDOOR / INDOOR" will go outside if the weather is fair.

Class will move inside in cases of:
- EXTREME HEAT: 29 degrees and higher, or uncomfortably humid
- POOR AIR QUALITY: 5 and higher on the Air Quality Ontario website
- RAIN or threat of rain

We won't be giving advance notice, so if it's seems iffy, please come prepared for either! Dress in layers and choose your preferred sun protection. When you arrive, the front desk staff can confirm where the class is. If needed, we'll have sunscreen and bug spray.


Browse our schedule for classes that start with "OUTDOOR / INDOOR." Classes that start with "IN-STUDIO" will never go outside.


Reserving a spot in an Outdoor Class

Passes: You can use any of our in-person yoga passes or membership to attend. If you had passes from before the pandemic, you’re welcome to use them! We also have great membership options and we offer sliding-scale drop-in rates for low-income folks. 

Reservations: Spots are limited, sign up early to avoid disappointment. If classes aren't full, you can try dropping in. Pro Tip! You can manage your bookings in our Mindbody Online booking system by clicking here.

Outdoor Bad-Weather: In the event of low temperatures, rain, or extreme heat, or poor air quality, we'll just head inside to the indoor studio.

Class Cancellation Policy: Please cancel your reservation 2 hours in advance if you can no longer attend an in-studio or outdoor class. This will ensure your account will not be charged and allows someone else to fill that spot. If you cancel less than 2 hours in advance your account will be charged for the class.

Waitlist Policy: If a class is full, try for a spot via the Waitlist! If someone cancels, you’ll be notified via email. Make sure you've enabled "Reminders and schedule changes" notifications in your account profile to ensure you receive this message, and let us know right away if you no longer want the spot.
