Yoga in the Park: A Fun Way to Get Outside and Stay In Shape

  |     |   Health and Wellness, Local Events

Yoga is a great workout and a fantastic way to find some peace of mind and slow down in today’s busy world. Yoga in the park is one of our favorite events because it gets people outside, brings the community together for an uplifting event, and is a free outdoor yoga event.

Saturday mornings are a perfect time for this, ending the week and starting a new one, beginning the weekend with something healthy and uplifting. The summer event goes through August at two different locations within 10-15 minutes of Algonquin Square Apartments here in Algonquin.

Location One – Randall Oaks Park

Where: Randall Oaks Park in the Front Shelter – 1180 N. Randall Rd., West Dundee, IL 60118

When: Saturday, August 14 and Saturday, August 28 from 8 am – 9 am

There will be several types of yoga. Yoga mats are not provided, so please bring your own yoga mat, towel, and water bottle. We recommend not eating within one hour of the class. The event is open to anyone 12 and over and is completely free!

Be sure to check out the Randall Oaks Zoo as well, just north of where the yoga will be held. 

 

Location Two – Sleepy Hollow Pool Side Yard

Where: Sleepy Hollow Pool, Side Yard – 875 Winmoor Dr., Sleepy Hollow, IL 60118

When: Saturday, August 7 and Saturday, August 21 from 8 am – 9 am

There will be several types of yoga. Yoga mats are not provided, so please bring your own yoga mat, towel, and water bottle. We recommend not eating within one hour of the class. The event is open to anyone 12 and over and is completely free!

This location is great because there is also the Jelke Creek Bird Sanctuary and Nature Preserve is just down the road, with miles of nature trails, bird watching, biking trails, and more. The 244 acres contain trees and ponds specifically designed to house different types of birds. These ponds were also part of the water quality improvement grant and allow water to be cleaned as it percolates through gravel beds and native plants into the ground.

Be sure to check out both spots this month and feel free to drop us a comment with any questions!
