Free Yoga in Miami Beach

3rd Street Beach Yoga

Free sunrise and sunset yoga classes are offered daily in South Beach by the 3rd Street lifeguard tower. Rise and shine at 7 a.m. or come for sunset at 5 p.m. during winter and fall months (6 p.m. in the spring and summertime). The tradition started in 1998 when newly certified local yoga teacher October Rose began her daily practice on the beach at 3rd Street. Over time, other locals joined her and, before she knew it, she was leading an impromptu morning class. While Rose has since moved to India, a roster of local yoga teachers has kept the practice going in her honor. Participants should bring a big beach towel, water and sunscreen. Classes are free (donations are accepted).
