Yoga has many health benefits. From flexibility to strength, to lowered health metrics, it is something everyone should aim to add to their exercise regimen. But sometimes exercising or doing yoga alone can be daunting, especially if you are new to it. Simply trying to follow a smartphone app or online video may not give you the encouragement or structure you need to improve and succeed in yoga. This is where community classes can come in handy. There, you can not only meet like minded people, but you can also get the guidance and support needed to make yoga a fun and positive experience. With this in mind, here are some of the top community yoga classes in Phoenix.


They are known for their yoga pants, but they offer way more than stylish workout gear. In fact, they have weekly Sunday yoga classes that are free to the public and lead by certified instructors. The classes are housed at The Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at the Montelucia, and are intended for all levels of yoga participants. So put on your yoga pants, and take some time out for yourself to enjoy community yoga with Lululemon.

Community Yoga Project at Civic Space Park

Held at beautiful Civic Space Park, all you need is a mat, some water, and yourself to get started.  Held at 8:30 am on Saturdays and free to the public, this outdoor experience is one that will connect you with others and nature. This class uses Ashtanga Yoga, also known as “Power Yoga.” Essentially, it has you flowing through posses while working on breathing. This style of yoga can produce a lot of sweat. If it gets too hot outside, the class is moved to the air conditioned YMCA. It is open to all levels of yogis.

Humble Monkey Yoga

This studio offers many styles of yoga, with two free classes each week. The last Saturday of each month, the studio holds a restorative yoga class at 11:30 a.m. In this class, attendants should plan for a slow flow. This means they will hold each pose for longer amounts of time and use blocks, blankets, and other props to help deepen poses and offer support. There is also a free 9:30 a.m. community class that is open to the public. Donations are encouraged, but not required, for both these classes. Be humble and give these a try to broaden your yoga horizons.
