Yoga at the Gateway Arch Begins May 3
Arch grounds hosts free outdoor yoga sessions Saturdays in the summer

St. Louis, April 15, 2014 –Beginning May 3rd, all yogis are invited to the Gateway Arch grounds every Saturday at 9 am for FREE one-hour outdoor yoga sessions within the sweeping urban oasis of Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and the Gateway Arch grounds. The sessions will be led by experienced yoga instructors from South City YMCA, and will combine posture and breathing techniques; focus on building strength, flexibility and stamina; and make way for deep relaxation of the mind and body.

Hosted by the National Park Service, these workout sessions are free and open to everyone ranging from beginners to advanced yoga enthusiasts, who are looking to escape the confined spaces of an indoor studio and instead desire the welcoming outdoor atmosphere of a national park. The sessions will continue weekly until construction on the Arch grounds begins later in the summer.

“We are extremely excited to host Yoga at the Gateway Arch again this year,” said Ann Honious, Chief, Museum Services and Interpretation, Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. “The National Park Service strives to promote health and fitness, and with these yoga sessions Jefferson National Expansion Memorial seeks to encourage regular exercise while combining the Arch grounds and group-friendly workouts.”

More than 100 people convened at each Yoga at the Arch session in 2013.  

Although the sessions are free, participants are encouraged to make reservations in advance at http://ticketsforthearch.com. In doing so, they’ll receive free parking at the Gateway Arch Parking Garage.
