Yoga on Parliament Hill


yoga-on-parliament-hill-credit-ottawa-tourismFree yoga classes each summer Wednesday outside the Centre Block of Parliament Hill.This Wednesday — June 2 — marks the first “guerilla yoga” session on Parliament Hill for 2010. This is the fourth summer that Lululemon Athletica has offered free yoga sessions on the lawn in front of Ottawa’s Parliament Buildings.

The sessions last about an hour, starting at 12:00 noon. They are adaptable so that rank beginners and long-time experts can all get something out of it. You just bring your mat and some water and you’re good to go.

The sessions run each Wednesday from June 2 through September 29 (weather permitting).

And the people who show up are an interesting mix of office workers, visitors and hard-core fitness fanatics. What a great way to spend your lunch hour!
