Six Ways to Turn the City into Your Yoga Studio

Why practice indoors when you've got a city full of places to strike a pose?

Boston is chock full of places to do yoga en plein air—and we’re not talking about all the free outdoor fitness classes happening this summer. (Though if you’re interested in those, here’s a handy guide.) No, we’re talking about the city itself. Around every street corner and down every alley is a new place to practice your crow pose and warrior two with the wind at your back.

Don’t believe us? Get inspired by these nine Instagram yogis and the places they practice.

1. The Christian Science Fountain.  Bonus: You’ve got a built-in place to cool down.
