Yoga at the VMFA

Yoga with a sculpture garden view.

Project Yoga Richmond and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts are offering up FREE (although a $10 or whatever you can afford donation is appreciated) outdoor classes in one of the city’s most unique settings. On various Fridays and Saturdays you’ll enjoy your yoga class on the VMFA’s  Belvidere Deck which overlooks the Sculpture Garden. More details from Project Yoga.

Classes are open to all levels, beginner-appropriate and family-friendly! We only ask that you tell your friends and stay in touch. A different PYR Ambassador leads each session. We cannot accept donations at the VMFA for these classes, but you can make a tax deductible online donation anytime here

If it rains or excessive heat advisory is forecast: A decision will be made as early as possible, using the best information available and noted on the calendar and via email. We will also make an announcement on Facebook. Please make sure you check one of these sources if the weather looks problematic!

When to arrive: 8:45 am or earlier to check in. Class is 60 minutes. All participants will be required to sign in prior to class. Participation is first come, first served! Arrive early for best location.

Where to park: In the VMFA parking deck or on the street anywhere that it’s allowed around the museum. Bicycle racks are available so consider biking to class!

What to bring: Your mat, water, a towel, and a friend! Sunscreen and sunglasses are strongly recommended! It can become quite hot, so be prepared with water and willing to take breaks when necessary. A very limited number of mats will be available to borrow.

What to wear: Something comfortable that you can move in! Prepare for the weather.

After class: Visit the museum’s Cafe or amazing exhibits!

Note: Our outdoor events are frequently photographed, and we cannot guarantee you will not appear in photos or that photos will not appear in social media. 

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is located at 200 N. Boulevard Richmond, Virginia, 23220.
