Free & Cheap Yoga in Louisville **Updated 7/18/17**

I love Yoga. I love going to yoga class, more than practicing at home, because being in the space, surrounded by like-minded yogis, seems to really help me center myself into my practice more than I can when surrounded by the distractions of home. That being said, I do not have a yogi’s bank account. Yoga classes in Louisville can range from $20-25 a class, a luxury I simply cannot afford for an hour of stress relief and exercise. I have compiled a list of free and cheap or donation based classes for myself, and I have been asked about the list a couple of times now. So, I thought I would share it with all of you lovely people. Many of these classes are called “Karma Classes,” which is a great practice many yoga studios follow, where they offer a donation based or “pay what you can” class. I encourage you to please donate something, if you can, in order to keep these classes around. I categorized the classes by DAY to make your life easier.

Your Welcome!

Sunday

  • The Inner Warrior @ 1760 Frankfort Avenue has a FREE class from 5:30-6:30. They have a Karma Jar out for donations, though, and it goes toward their Karma Drive which help keep homeless Louisvillians warm  this winter. **You must register on their website before class.
  • 502 Power Yoga has Yoga for Recovery from 2:00-3:30 pm. This is a donation based class. This class ties in the 12-Step program, for those of you who may be struggling with addiction.

 

Monday

  • St. Paul’s Church at 2000 Douglas Blvd in the highlands has a yoga class for $5 from 5:30-6:30 pm.
  • Shelby Park Community Center has a free community yoga class from 6-7 pm on Monday nights.
  • There is a $5 yoga class at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park on Mondays at 6pm. During warm weather this is outside, and I honestly don’t know if they move it indoors to the community area for the winter. If anyone does know, please comment and share!
  • Wanna enjoy some hops with your bend? Flat 12 Brewery hosts a donation-based yoga class at their brewery every Monday at 7:00pm. They are located in Jeffersonville at 130 West Riverside Drive. There is a $5 suggested donation, and $1 off your pints!

  • From 4:30-5:45 Yoga East offers a $5 community class at their St. Matthews Studio at 115 Wiltshire Avenue, 40207.

 

Wednesday

  • E. P. Tom Sawyer Park has a yoga class at 6 pm on Wednesdays for $5. Like the Monday class, I’m not sure if it’s been moved inside because of the winter.
  • St. Paul’s Church at 2000 Douglas Blvd in the highlands has a yoga class for $5 from 5:30-6:30 pm.
  • The Inner Warrior @ 1760 Frankfort Avenue has a FREE class from 7:30-8:30. They have a Karma Jar out for donations, though, and it goes toward their Karma Drive which help keep homeless Louisvillians warm  this winter. **You must register before class on their website HERE

Friday

  • Yoga East has $5 Chair Yoga class from 10:30-11:45am. Chair Yoga is great for seniors and yogis who are in a wheelchair.

 

Saturday

  • 11am-12pm at Tim Faulkner Art Gallery there is a donation based yoga class. This is sponsored by the Kentucky Yoga Initiative and it is my personal favorite yoga class.
  • Yoga on Baxter has a $5 community class on Saturdays from noon to 1 pm.
  • From 10-11am at the Jeffersonville Riverstage there is a free yoga class hosted by Inner Spring Yoga. I love that this class is outside, but hopefully early enough to beat the heat, plus nice and breezy by the river.

 

This is, by no means, a complete and comprehensive list of affordable yoga options in Louisville. I would love to keep adding to this list, so if you have anything to add, please comment!! Also, if you’re looking for a yoga buddy, don’t hesitate to reach out.

 

Namaste,
