Yoga on the Midway is going ahead full throttle. The annual event, which will take place from 7-9 a.m. on Saturday, May 6 is in its fourth year and joins the Downtown San Diego Partnership with Scripps Health and Yoga One for a unique, free experience as part of the “Healthy Living in the City” series.

As has been the tradition since its inception, co-founder and head teach of Yoga One Amy Caldwell will lead the class of approximately 1,000 people atop the flight deck of the USS Midway Museum.

“An important part of our teaching at Yoga One includes reminding students to listen to and honor their bodies as they enjoy breathing and moving through the poses,” said Caldwell. “We look forward to seeing you and making it a fantastic experience for participants of all levels — brand new beginners and experienced yogis alike, all are welcome.”

When asked what her favorite part about this event is, Caldwell responded,”It is so empowering to connect with approximately 1,000 people on the flight deck of the USS Midway and share together the joys and benefits of yoga.”

Even though this is a free class, registration is required . Participants are asked to bring their own yoga mats or towels, and to arrive early as space is limited to a first come, first serve basis for the first 1,000 attendees. Some walk-ins on the day of the event may be accepted, but it is dependent on available space. Registration is available at eventbrite.com.
