Kansas City has a really great yoga scene that seems to be growing all the time. There’s always pop-up yoga at local breweries and various parks around the city. Some of my favorite pop-up yoga sessions happen at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art.
The lawn at the Nelson Atkins is huge, with plenty of spaces for yoga, picnics, frisbee games and more. Throughout the spring, summer and fall months, you can find free outdoor yoga at the Nelson Atkins at least three days a week a more. The biggest session that I’ve found is on Sunday mornings at 11am.
It is hosted by a group that has been around for about three years. They do a great job of bringing volunteer instructors in, so there’s a variety of styles represented. It’s also always all-levels yoga, so everyone can enjoy the practice, whether you’re a first timer or a practiced yogi. In the spring and fall, they switch yoga in the park to 2pm, so find them on Facebook for updates on upcoming yoga sessions.
After yoga, be sure and take a stroll around the Nelson Atkins’ sculpture park. And of course, snap a pic of the famous shuttlecocks. xx, Libbie.
