Between reducing your risk of injury, improving the mind-body connection, improving your sex life, and helping you just breathe and relax, yoga offers a lot of positive health benefits.

Here’s the good news: There are plenty of free yoga classes all over the country where you can flow through chaturanga without any financial woes. 

Scroll down to see a list of where to do free yoga in every state this summer.
