In Racine County, there's no shortage of spots to find your zen with unique yoga classes and activities. Here's our list of some that will make you want to come and namaste a while.
Enjoy Gentle Yoga Classes while socializing with friendly dwarf goats! Goats are peaceful, personable animal therapy companions that add humor and playfulness to our yoga practice. Stretch and strengthen, and experience the benefits of bringing yoga, nature and loving animals together! Children are welcome but they should be able to make it through an hour-long yoga class. Please bring a mat or towel that can be washed. All classes are one hour and start on time; feel free to arrive 15 minutes early to shop and snuggle. $15 per person per class.

An outdoor class with the best kind of post-class refreshment: Craft Beer. (Wine, Bloodies, and Beermosas are also available) All levels of practice and beer-loving are welcome. It's Yoga for everybody and everybody. No pressure, never too serious. Just fun, feel-good, stretching and stress relieving among beer-loving friends. $10 includes the 45-minute class and a beer at the Franksville Craft Beer Garden after class.

Back for a second year, the Downtown Racine Corporation presents Bend and Brew, free outdoor yoga on Sam Johnson Parkway beginning on Saturday June 22. Yoga sessions, which are lead by YogaRootsRacine, will be from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. every Saturday until August 31. After every session, participants will receive a certificate to use towards a free coffee or beer at participating businesses.
With Lake Michigan as the backdrop, start each Saturday morning off with a relaxing hour of yoga. Sessions will be lead with people of all ages and skill levels in mind. A few yoga mats will be available, but patrons are highly encouraged to bring their own. Registration is not required, but plan on coming 5-10 minutes prior to start time to sign-in. Although this is a free yoga session, there is a recommended donation of $5 to go towards the instructors from Yoga Roots Racine.
Featured on national lists such as the Top 5 Best Freshwater Beach (USA Today), Top 10 Family Friendly Beach (Parents magazine) and Top City Beach (Midwest Living magazine), North Beach is a hit among residents and visitors alike to catch some waves and some rays in the summertime. North Beach offers more than 50 acres of beautifully groomed sand and shoreline, so there's plenty of space to spread out and find your zen.
