Miami, FL – As one of the winners of The Miami Foundation’s Public Space Challenge, Bayfront Park’s Fitness Caravan is looking forward to taking their successful free yoga program to two off-site locations. Beginning in April, 2014, and running through July, 2014, a free yoga class will take place at Jose Marti Park every Tuesday at 6:00pm and a free class will take place at the Little Haiti Cultural Center every Thursday at 6:00pm. The classes are made possible by Chairman Commissioner Frank Carollo, The Miami Foundation, The Health Foundation of South Florida, Bayfront Park Management Trust, and the City of Miami’s Parks Department.
Both classes will be held outdoors and in the event of inclement weather, the classes will be held indoors. Beginners, intermediate, and advanced participants are welcome. All participants must be at least 18 years old and will have to sign a waiver. Everyone must bring their own yoga mat, water, and towel.
Bayfront Park’s Chairman, City Commissioner Frank Carollo said, “I am very excited to bring free yoga to Little Havana and Little Haiti. This award allows us to spread health and wellness to the people of the City of Miami. Over 106,000 people have already benefitted from free yoga classes at Bayfront Park and we hope to continue to grow that number in the years to come.”
