Summer is the time to re-introduce healthy and active lifestyles; the days are longer, warmer and brighter perfect for the seasoned yogi or beginner. Yoga is a great outdoor activity and now we have the weather to compliment it. The Bay Area is full of numerous beautiful outdoor locations for fitness, so grab your mat and checkout our favorite four below.
An evening session at the Lafayette Reservoir is the perfect way to end your day. During the day the reservoir is alive with various activities such as fishing, boating, picnicking, rollerblading and hiking. In the evening however the reservoir is frequented much less save for a few quiet joggers. Surrounded by lush green walking trails the glassy body of water can be seen from every point providing a beautiful view to look out onto while doing yoga. There are plenty of grassy areas on which to roll out your mat as well as various docks and stages around the reservoir. The stages require reservations in advance but are perfect for larger groups and provide a bit more stability than the soft grass. The reservoir is conveniently located minutes away from downtown Lafayette; perfect for grabbing a bite after your session at one of the many restaurants and cafes.
