Yoga in the Park


Free classes every Tuesday at Noon in June, July and August!
Prescott Park in Portsmouth, NH

In 2005, Seacoast yoga teachers collaborated to bring their collective passion for yoga outside to our beautiful harbor town with five free, outdoor classes. Since then, we have offered fourteen free, public classes every summer in the stunning Prescott Park. 

The power of collaboration was born that summer in Prescott Park and it is this mutual respect between all teachers on the Seacoast that brings power to work we do here at SATYA. Please join us for free classes every Tuesday at Noon in June, July and August in Prescott Park on the waterfront in Portsmouth, NH.

Bring a yoga mat or beach towel on which to practice. Meet at the Whale Statue. Sunglasses, sunscreen and hats are recommended as these classes are held outside, in full sun. In case of rain, classes are cancelled. Stay updated to cancellations on our Facebook page.

  • David is a 13 year Army Veteran who served in Iraq and is co-owner of Yoga on York in York Maine. Yoga gave him a way to strengthen and calm his mind, body and soul. Always “matter of fact” and never graceful in any yoga pose his classes are fun, challenging and focus on strength, mindfulness and patience.

  • Sarah Jones, E-ryt 200, was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. She was trained in Vinyasa flow 200+ hr. Her practice started in 1999 with Anusara Yoga where she feels the root of her teaching comes from. She studies many different styles of yoga including Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kundalini and Anusara. She believes in balancing your practice with masculine and feminine, muscular energy and organic energy, mind and body as well as heart opening. Her personal philosophy is to go upside down every day! She loves to challenge her students to not only to try something new and exciting physically but to open up your mental and emotional possibilities to what the hour or so holds for you. Sarah believes yoga is a way to create a controlled, confrontational situation so that when you get out into the world, you have the resources to breath and realign your body and mind in a way that will handle any stress. Most importantly, Sarah loves to "play" and experiment with new and fun postures. She was also trained by Miniyogis, in Santa Monica, CA to teach kids yoga. Sarah is very excited to be teaching at Yoga in the Park again! Follow her on her Yoga Facebook Page, Happy Love Yoga
