“Pop Up Yoga began as an idea to bring more free yoga to people who are intimidated to step into a studio space or find the cost of classes to be prohibitive,” Hogren says. “Our hope is that someone new each week or month will try a class, meet a new friend, and feel stronger and more relaxed and then consider exploring a regular practice at a local studio.”
So far the community has embraced the idea. The beloved T-shirt empire Raygun has partnered with the initiative to sell “Yoga in Des Moines: I’m Down, Dog” shirts in-store and online.
Classes have already started. For more information and to see the schedule, check out popupyogadsm.com, like the group on Facebook and follow them on Instagram @popupyogadsm.
