Brooklyn Grange’s latest crop? Yogis

Brooklyn Grange’s Yoga at the Farm class takes place above the Navy Yard and next to the growing greens.


While outdoor yoga has become summertime prolific with vinyasa in virtually all the city parks and piers, a new weekly class recently kicked off in a green space where gardeners, not yogis, typically tread: the Brookyn Grange.

Sarah Capua of Home Yoga NY is teaching the hour-long sessions on the famed rooftop farm at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, which supplies produce and herbs to dozens of the city’s restaurants and thousands of farmer’s market shoppers.

Yoga at the Farm “is geared toward a communal experience of yoga in an expansive, natural setting, floating high above the pace of the busy city,” says Capua. “It’s an opportunity to have a brief weekly retreat.”

Classes on the rooftop terrace, adjacent to the farm, are expected to go through October. Just BYO mat, and mind the lettuce, please. —Melisse Gelula

Yoga at the Farm, Tuesdays at 7:45. Cost: $16.52. To register and for more information, visit
