Roundup: Cheap Yoga Classes In Boston
Cheap yoga classes for Bostonians on a budget.
Yoga is supposed to be calming—that is, until you get the bill for that 10-class card. We’ve put together a list of the cheapest yoga classes in Boston—all under $15—where you can relax, be energized, and sweat out the stress, without having to skip your next grocery shopping trip to pay for it.
Karma Yoga may have just opened a classy location on Newbury Street, but their Allston location, KarmaRevolution, is a donation-only yoga studio. Unlike other donation yoga classes, KarmaRevolution only accepts donations—there are no other packages or drop in rates. So when you blow too much money on coffee one week, you can choose to donate $5 for your class, then next week when your manager makes you stay late and you get paid overtime, you can donate $16. Its an easy, awesome way to get your yoga fix for cheap.
KarmaRevolution, 971 Commonwealth Avenue, 3rd floor, Allston. Minimum donation: $5, maximum donation $16 or more. For more pricing information, visit karmayogastudios.com
Back Bay Yoga Community Classes
If you’re looking for a non-traditional, upbeat yoga class, look no further than Back Bay Yoga’s daily community classes. Mostly featuring hip hop and “reggaeton” yoga, these community classes are only $5 cash. Preregister if you can, because these classes fill up early, and even if you do, make sure to get there early. It’s one of the best deals in town, so everyone wants in.
Back Bay Yoga, 364 Boylston Street, second floor. Community classes: $5 cash only. For more pricing information, visit backbayyoga.com
Lawrence Yoga Collective
If you’re willing to travel a little farther to save on yoga, the Lawrence Yoga Collective is another donation yoga studio, except this one has no minimum donation rate. Their suggested donation is $10, which is already one of the cheapest rates in the area, but they say that no donation is too small. Dedicated to bringing yoga to everyone, no matter the financial situation, Lawrence Yoga Collective is perfect for students living paycheck to paycheck who still want to continue their yoga practices. Join founder Bill Peregoy for classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 9:00 a.m.
Lawrence Yoga Collective, 275 Essex Street, second floor, Lawrence. Suggested donation: $10. For more pricing information, visit lawrenceyoga.com
Sadhana Yoga Boston
On Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, Sadhana offers $5, hour-long, walk-in community classes. You can’t sign up in advance so make sure to get there early, and bring cash. Additionally, on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. respectively, join Sadhana instructors Julia and Bobo for an hour long Daily Practice session for just $8 for students who walk in. These sessions are designed for yoga students looking for a quick and cheap class, and none of them are more than 60 minutes from start to finish. For a more complete schedule of 90 minute or more classes, Sadhana offers a $12 full-time student drop-in rate.

Since opening its doors in September, Radiant Yoga has offered hundreds of classes from candlelight flow to power prana yoga. Starting November 1st, Radiant also launched its Yoga For Single Moms program that provides complimentary yoga classes and child care to single moms looking for balance. They also have community classes, but these are slightly different from other community sessions—they’re the same price as other Radiant classes but they are taught by pairs of newly certified instructors who are just starting their journeys in yoga leadership. Student rates are only $12 and classes are offered every day of the week.
Radiant Yoga, 516 East 2nd Street, South Boston. Student rate: $12. For more pricing information, visit radiantyogaboston.org
Coolidge Corner Yoga
For anyone living in the Allston or Brookline areas, Coolidge Corner Yoga is conveniently located on Beacon Street and offers student rates of only $13.
