Free yoga at The Assemblage

This co-working community for the wellness crowd is offering free yoga sessions at its John Street location through September 25. Join beloved teachers like Bee Bosnak, creator of the Heal Yourself method, and Cat Meyer, a yogi and sex therapist, for power vinyasa on the outdoor terrace or stress-mitigating restorative sessions. Or bring your kids to a free yoga lesson led by Beth Tufekcic, general manager for The Assemblage John Street and an experienced children’s yoga instructor.

Cards are good until the end of October.

Art & Yoga Urban Retreat at the Rubin Museum of Art

Curated by NY Yoga + Life magazine, the third annual Art & Yoga Urban Retreat blends a number of wellness activities and modalities including meditation, medicine readings, astrology and a yoga class led by the renowned Tao Porchon-Lynch. One of the oldest yoga teachers in the world, Porchon-Lynch, 100, will also be giving a talk about her experiences practicing with yoga masters including BKS Iyengar.

Astoria Yoga Crawl

The Queens neighborhood of Astoria is known for its diverse and plentiful food options, but it also has a burgeoning wellness scene to keep things balanced. On the Astoria Yoga Crawl you’ll stop at four local venues for meditation and intention setting, a beginner-friendly inversions class (if you’ve always wanted to master the headstand, this one’s for you), herbal tea and a restorative session to wrap up the day. Best of all, it’s free.
