FREE Yoga in San Diego

A dent in your wallet from your yoga class should be the least of your worries when you step on to your mat. As we learned from: Yoga, Inc. Where Spiritualism and Capitalism Collide, Yoga, just like any other industry strives to make money. I’ve heard many people object to starting a yoga practice because it’s just too expensive. For the New Year, I partnered with San Diego’s savviest deal finder, Junvi from Diego On a Dime and compiled a list of places consistently offering free and low cost yoga classes all over San Diego.



Lululemon, known for their knockout yoga workout wear, has three locations in San Diego County and each locale offers complimentary yoga classes. Each month, they invite a different yoga studio to host the free weekly class. The San Diego Showroom is located on the corner of G Street and 9th Avenue, and offers free yoga classes on Saturdays at 9:30 am. The Carlsbad location, located at 1923 Calle Barcelona, Suite 136, offers their classes on Saturdays at 9 am, and the La Jolla location, 7835 Girard Street, holds their classes on Saturdays at 8:30am.

Corepower Yoga
Corepower Yoga offers free beginner’s classes at four San Diego locations. Get your free workout at the following times and locations: Sundays at 1:30 pm in Hillcrest; Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm in La Jolla-UTC for Intro to Power Yoga; Monday at 7 pm and Saturday at 8:45 am and 4:15 pm (Yoga Sculpt) in Mission Valley; and Sunday at 6:30 pm at the Point Loma location.


Charity Workouts
Get some healthy yoga classes in Balboa Park AND donate to charity. You get a professional instructor for a whole hour (every Saturday at 10am) of serenity and bliss for almost-free. All donations are completely voluntary and 100 percent of it goes to Outdoor Outreach, an organization that empowers at-risk youth through introducing them to outdoor activities. It’s a double win!

One Love Yoga San Diego
Free yoga classes are offered throughout the week in a beautiful hall adjoining the Swedenborg Church of San Diego in University Heights. Classes include Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga Yoga. It’s fitting that a workout that’s as much spiritual as it is physical would be found here.

Red Lotus Society
Located in the beautifully restored Ideal Hotel at the edge of the Gaslamp Quarter, RLS offers a variety of donation-based yoga classes on nearly every day of the week. Classes include Ashtanga Fusion Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and deep yoga. They also offer donation-only Qi Gong and American Kenpo Karate.


San Diego Outdoor/Indoor Yoga Meetup
Every Saturday, at the Recreational Center in La Jolla, various yoga instructors offer free yoga  (along with other classes) for free. These meet-ups bring together beginners and experienced, and those of different ideas and styles, all united under the greater philosophy that is yoga.

Basic Yoga and Meditation Meetup by the Beach
Most Sundays at 11am at the beach, find a refreshing atmosphere and fun companions… for a $5 donation. Meet people and make new friends “away from the snotty yoga studios”, according to the leader, Reza.

SD Free Yoga in Balboa Park Meetup
Created to promote longevity and healthy living in the community, this meet-up group meets in Balboa Park on different days of the week, usually in the afternoons or early evenings.  Check the site for times.

Now that you know where to go for cost efficient yoga, I’ll see you on the other side!
