The time of year when we really appreciate Arizona weather is upon us, as is Yoga Rocks the Park. The event returns Sunday, February 23, with its third annual five-week celebration of yoga, music, giving, and getting outdoors (before we all collectively hibernate).

The 75-minute all-levels flow classes will start at 2 p.m. at Steele Indian School Park, and incorporate live music from local artists, including DJ Drez, Reynaldo Moreno and H3lla. In addition to the all-levels class there will be a Yoga Rocks the Park Kids Camp, so there's no need to worry about finding a sitter to get your savasana on.

The event takes place on Sundays from February 23 through March 30, with the exception of March 23. Tickets are $12 and available online, which is a recommended option to save you time in the registration process on day of the event. March 9 is YRP's Free Day, sponsored by Spirit of Yoga at The Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA).

Every week will feature a pair of local, well-known yoga instructors. Opening day features husband-and-wife duo Max and Lisa Cohen, followed the next week by Anton Mackey with Desiree Lapre, then Mary Bruce with Will Glass, Alex Austin with Jenn Chiarelli, and Rebecca Lammersen with Tara Martell closing out the event.

Mackey, who has taught at the event every year so far, says he loves co-teaching, especially with Lapre, because they have similar styles but a different energy on how they deliver.

"The students get a real balanced experience," Mackey says. "Plus her and I do a lot of event together, from our handstand workshops to our yoga retreats, so we have fun teaching together."

Also at the event will be vendors ranging from jewelry company Silver and Sage, to Yoganastix Clothing, doTERRA essential oils, LifePower yoga studio, and many others.

Originally started in Denver, Colorado, seven years ago, YRP is now in more than 20 cities in the U.S.

Kristina Krump, Phoenix's YRP event director since its arrival three years ago, says she feels incredibly lucky every day to share and take part in the beauty that is Phoenix's yoga community.
