The yoga class with the best view in Vancouver is back for the summer! Grouse Mountain and YYoga have brought back the popular mountaintop class for August and you’re invited to stretch in the sunshine on Saturdays and Sundays.
Each 60 minute yoga class will be led every weekend until August 27th from 10:00am – 11:00am in the Plaza at the top of Grouse Mountain – just outside of the chalet. It’s the perfect excuse to get out of bed early on the weekend and relax in the sun while gazing down on the stunning views over the city and beyond. Plus, did we mention that it’s free?
Whether you need a great post-Grind cool down, or you’re just looking to experience a different yoga venue, these 60-minute mountaintop yoga classes are bound to enhance your physical well-being and kick start your weekend!
If you’re planning to hit up the yoga class after conquering the Grouse Grind, keep in mind that typically people climb it in an hour and a half. But, it can take much longer if it’s your first time attempting the climb. Depending on your fitness level, you can get your time below an hour, or you can take up to two hours. Don’t forget your water bottle!
Alternatively, you can arrive to the yoga class in style by taking the Skyride up the mountain. Tickets up the mountain cost around $ 50.00 for an adult, but include access to Lumberjack Shows, Birds in Motion demonstrations, Ranger Talks at the Bear Habitat, and much more.
If you prefer your yoga at sea level, there is also free yoga held every day in Kitsilano and Main Street.
For those who don’t want to lug a yoga mat up the mountain, there are mats available for the first 50 yogis in the class. Otherwise, bring a towel to stretch out on the grass and you should be fine.
More information about the free mountaintop yoga classes can be found on the Grouse Mountain website.
