Yoga classes are now as close as a neighborhood park or local beach.
More yoga instructors are moving some of their classes from the studio to a lakeshore or a garden.
Taking yoga outdoors not only offers a change of scenery, but provides other benefits, like a healthy dose of vitamin D through sunshine, said Aislynn Schacht, a yoga instructor at Big Foot Recreation Department, who's been teaching yoga at Country Club Estates Beach in Fontana for four years.
A popular class at True Studio in Janesville is Fetch and Stretch, held at Palmer Park in the city, which lets participants bring their dogs along.
"The pets get an hour of undistracted attention and people get to bond with their dogs," said Stefanie Kuerscher, owner of True Studio.
