“Yoga Rocks the Park is not just a weekly event, it’s a movement to bring a sense of peace and joy to our communities" - Erik, founder of YRP
First time heading to Yoga Rocks the Park? Or, are you a seasoned YRP goer looking to enjoy the experience even more? Check out this helpful list of ways to make the most of your Yoga Rocks the Park adventure...
1. Register & grab some goodies.
Arrive at the park by 8 am (we start at 8:30) and come say hi to the Yoga Rocks the Park Crew waiting for you at registration to check you in (please show your ticket on your mobile device OR just let us know your name - no need to print out your ticket). Also, don't forget to grab your free goodies from our partners). Pre-registration is encouraged to guarantee your spot and keep the lines flowing at the park. Please and thank you for that. ;)
2. Grab your mat, water bottle + sunscreen.
Head to the park EARLY with your friends, family or just roll solo as close-in parking for YRP is limited. Better yet, ride your bike or carpool. Don't have a mat? No problem - in Denver MamaRoo Yoga is on-site so you can sample/purchase a mat from.
3. Pre yoga needs?
Grab a juice or snack in the Wellness Vendor Village. Bring your wallet (CC's accepted by most vendors) so you can pick up some new goodies from the 20+ vendors before and/or after class and enjoy connecting with old and new friends.
4. Drop your little yogis off at Camp YRP
If you have your kiddos with you (ages 5-10), you can drop them off at Camp YRP provided by Sanctuary Station Yoga & Meditation, which happens right by the main class and begins and ends 5 minutes before/after your class to ensure that Moms and Dads can enjoy their full savasana. p.s. They are always welcome to join you in the main practice.
5. Enjoy Guided Meditation, Yoga + Live Music and post-yoga mini-wellness workshops in Mother Nature with your Friends & Family
The 75-minute all-levels flow begins guided by some of your favorite local and national yoga teachers, accompanied by a LIVE SOUNDTRACK provided local emerging and nationally renowned musicians. In Denver you'll want to come early and stay late as the yoga class is preceded by a guided meditation and peace talk while post yoga there are free mini-wellness workshops in the vendor village. Breathe and enjoy the sacred space our teachers and musicians create for you each week in the presence of Mother Nature.
6. Mingle, hug a friend, support a local cause / business.
After class, the music and mingling continues and we encourage you meet someone new, and learn more about your local businesses and Seva Partners in our Wellness Vendor Village.
Bonus: You give just by showing up
All YRP cities donate some to all proceeds to local/national non-profits. In Denver 50% of all donations go to TBD. Can't afford to donate? No problem, in Denver the event is free thanks to local partners.
We all leave the park as shiny, happy people which ripples out into our communities!
Then, we do it all again in a couple of weeks!
