Yoga On Tap

If you have never been to Charlotte, then you may not know, but we are all about the local brewery. This city has over 40 different breweries, and many of them host activities like group rides, run clubs, and yoga. Yoga on Tap is a free class held on Tuesday evenings at Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. Stretch it out and then hit the taphouse…or reverse the order and be extra stretchy for class. UPDATE: Yoga on Tab at OMB has been canceled indefinitely according to the brewery’s website. I will let you know when/if it starts back up again.

D9 Brewing Company

If German beer just isn’t your thing, head to D9 on Tuesday nights instead and join the Vinyasa Arts yoga class. The fee for the class is only $10 and it starts at 7 pm. D9 is a little outside the actual city. You will find it on Treynorth Drive in Cornelius.

Lenny Boy Brewing

If you are up bright and early on Saturday morning, head to Lenny Boy Brewing company where $5 dollars gets you a yoga class and a 6 oz pour of Kombucha…they put the om in Kombucha (I can’t take credit for that wittiness! It was on their site.) If you still want more physical activity, you can head back to Lenny Boy on Sunday and join the run club as well.

Sahaja Yoga Meetup Group

The Sahaja group is open to everyone and all of the yoga meditation classes are completely free! Check their schedule on Meetup to find class information. Most of the classes seem to take place on Sundays.

The Whitewater Center hosts a free outdoor yoga class during the warmer spring and summer months. There is a $6 parking fee at the center, but you can buy an annual pass if you plan to go often. And while you are there, you can partake in some of the other fun activities like kayaking or SUP.

Y2 Yoga

The Y2 Yoga studio offers good karma classes at the discounted rate of $13 (normal rate per class is $22). Check the schedule to find the special discounted classes and bask in all the good karma while you sweat it out in their hot yoga room. I can personally vouch for the 101 Sunday class: it kicked my arse!

I Am Yoga

Keisha Battles leads yoga classes at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Your very first class is free, but they are only $5 after that. You will need to bring your own mat to these classes as they don’t have any for you to use.
