You have your electric-pink yoga mat, but its been stashed away in your trunk for the past six months. And those pricey winter-white leggings with the matching top? Yeah, theyre collecting dust somewhere in your dresser. We know the excuses to not exercise outweigh the ones to get up and go, but doing yoga does more than improve your health and fitness; you might be one of the lucky people able to reach physical immortality. But whether youre aiming for the afterlife or just the ability to touch your knees with your elbows, there are a few places to get busy. Best of all, theyre free. The Standard is known for being superchic and down-to-earth, and at 4:15 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays through August, you can get free yoga lessons from yogis you can trust. These nine newbies studied under Standard faves Loren Russo and Terri Cooper, and were sure they cant wait to see the perfection in your tree pose. Call 305-673-1717 to reserve your spot. And if youre still up for another session, take your mat down to Bayfront Park for yoga with a view. Youll forget how weird it feels to do the downward dog in public once a bay breeze hits your lungs. The class is from 6 to 7:15 p.m. and is first come, first served. Call 305-358-7550.
