After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Austin’s official Free Day of Yoga is returning! This citywide event is a 20-year tradition that is celebrated on Labor Day, where studios open their doors to the public with free yoga all day. Free Day of Yoga will return under new ownership – the original organizers have retired after 20 years, and have invited local gym Castle Hill Fitness to assume ownership.

“Many remarkable people have put their time, love, care, and skills into Free Day of Yoga for over 20 years. We are honored to take on the mantle of this local tradition,” says Castle Hill Fitness General Manager, Lori Johnson. “It’s an exciting opportunity to come together with our Austin yoga community to celebrate and continue to make the benefits of yoga accessible to all.”
The returning annual event will take place on Labor Day, Monday, September 5, 2022. Studios and individual instructors all over Austin will host classes – membership is not required to participate, and people of all abilities are encouraged to join! All participating studios will be listed on the official Free Day of Yoga website, with links to each studio’s online schedule.
Additionally, Waterloo Greenway will partner with Free Day of Yoga to offer classes in the park! Local studios and instructors will host a variety of classes in multiple spaces of the downtown Austin park all throughout the day.
Mark your calendars and come celebrate the joys of yoga with the Austin community!
