9 Must-Attend Yoga Events in Denver
Colorado loves yoga, and yoga loves Colorado. There is a beautiful yoga community in the Centennial State, and you can find a yoga class just about anywhere. Specifically in Denver, the yoga community does an amazing job bringing yogis together all over the city to continue to build community and support through a range of great local events.
Here are 9 must-attend yoga events in the Denver area:
Yoga Rocks the Park Denver
This is a FREE outdoor event that occurs on select Sundays beginning in the spring and continuing through the fall. Each class is taught by an instructor from a local studio with live music from area DJs as well as a guided meditation before class.
Register online before the event to be entered to win prizes from local vendors. And since this event is all about community, donations are accepted and will be given to the Food Bank of the Rockies. After the event, hang with your “omies” and enjoy the Vendor Village along with three free mini-workshops on various health and wellness topics. If you have kids who’d like to participate, Radiant Beginnings Yoga offers a Kids Camp during the event as well.
When: Sundays beginning in the spring and continuing through the fall
Where: Sunken Gardens Park
But wait, there’s more! The August 21 event is sponsored by YogiApproved.com, and we’d love to see you there!

Monday Night Sound Off™ Yoga at Space Gallery
Space Gallery creates a beautiful setting every Monday night to practice alongside fellow yogis. Each week, a different local teacher brings you an entirely different class, which is great because each class is as unique as the location. To add more to your yoga experience, Sound Off™ will be there providing headphones for a one-of-a-kind “silent yoga” practice. This is a donation-based class and space is limited, so sign up early to reserve your spot.
When: Monday Nights
Where: Sapce Gallery on Sante Fe

Friday Night Yoga Club
Friday Night Yoga Club (FNYC) is an awesome way to end your work week. Each Friday night beginning in the fall, the FNYC travels to different yoga studios and venues to bring you a fun night of yoga and community. This is a fantastic way to check out local studios, meet new yogis in your area, and provides an alternative to the typical weekend nightlife options.
Class is usually 75 minutes long with food, giveaways, music and fun afterward. Tickets are available online or at the door, but heads up – this popular event usually sells out.
When: Friday Nights beginning in the Fall and going through the Spring
Where: Different locations throughout the city
