About Us



It can be difficult to escape the noise in the city, commune with nature, and relieve stress but at Beach Yoga Chicago you can do all three! Yogis roll out their mats on Chicago Beach's fine sands. As hushing waves, sweep before you and the natural beauty of Montrose Pointe Bird Sanctuary is behind you. Instructors offer a variety of classes to ensure practitioners of all levels can feel welcome during each session they attend. 


Where are the classes held?
Check-in for classes will be in front of The Dock Restaurant at Montrose Beach on the stairs nearest to the volleyball nets. The Dock is a blue and white building with a café/restaurant, restrooms, concession stands and a patio.
