With Lake Michigan as the backdrop, start each Saturday morning off with a relaxing hour of yoga. Sessions will be lead with people of all ages and skill levels in mind.
A few yoga mats will be available, but patrons are highly encouraged to bring their own. Registration is not required, but plan on coming 5-10 minutes prior to start time to sign-in. Although this is a free yoga session, there is a recommended donation of $5 to go towards the instructors from Yoga Roots Racine. In the case that Bend and Brew will need to be cancelled because of weather, all announcements will be made on the Downtown Racine Corporation’s Facebook Page. (Please note, there will be no yoga on August 3)
“We are excited to be able to offer free yoga overlooking Lake Michigan each Saturday. We encourage you to stay after and explore all the amazing downtown shops and restaurants.” –Kelly Kruse, DRC Executive Director
