Definitely a great experience at least once. The price is right (free) and the venue is lovely (Bryant Park). But, it's not quite peaceful or zen, and of course it isn't an intense workout. I love that they provide mats, and it's a nice treat to savasana in the grass. 


How do you say no to a free yoga class in one of NYC's best green spaces? This is a great way for a newbie to try yoga for the first time and for an experienced yogi to take a break from a more intense session, as the size of the crowd can make it difficult for an attendee to focus on themselves.  Go early so you can have a good spot towards the front of the stage so you can hear and see the instructor clearly.  If you're worried about getting there late, bring your own mat so you can join the class as soon as you get there.
