While our studio doors remain ordered closed, please join us at our new temporary home away from home outdoors! Enjoy a full schedule of classes each week in the fresh air and sunshine in one of Ventura’s favorite parks, Camino Real Park. Meet us on the basketball courts near the main entrance off Dean Dr.
Registering for Park Classes
Pre-registration is required for all park classes. You will not be able to purchase pricing options or make adjustments to your account at class.
Pricing will function exactly as it does in our physical space. Click here to explore all of our pricing options for park classes.
We are currently waiving our no-show and late cancellation fees, but we do ask that you try your best to cancel your spot in class if you know you can’t make it, so that our instructors aren’t expecting you. Canceling class is just as easy as signing up! Log in to your GY app, MindBody app, or our website, open up the class and select cancel.
You will be able to book classes up to two weeks in advance.
Preparing for Park Classes
While props are always optional, you can find recommended props for each class in the class descriptions.
If you need props, visit our online shop here or purchase directly through our partnered yoga equipment brand, Manduka, and use code “grassrootsyogafam” at checkout to share a portion of your sale with us!
Please double check to make sure that the email address in your account settings is accurate and up to date. This is the email address you will be receiving correspondence for all classes including park class cancellations or changes.
Due to health and safety requirements, yoga mats and props will not be provided, please bring your own equipment.
Checking in for Park Classes
How do I find you?
Our new park home is located at Camino Real Park in Ventura, on the basketball courts immediately to the right after you enter through the main gate on Dean Dr.
Where do I park my car?
There is ample parking inside the park, however PLEASE NOTE that the traffic gates to the park are closed at 6pm and do not open before 7am. Any cars inside the park after the gates close will be locked in overnight. We suggest parking at the end of Aurora Rd. and entering by foot. There is a short walking path that leads you directly to us! Even better, leave the car at home and ride your bike! There are bike racks right next to our spot.
Are restrooms available?
Public restrooms inside the park are available between the hours of 7am and 6pm.
A note on shade.
Most of the day, the court is shaded by surrounding trees. However, in the afternoon/evening, the only shade available will be under our small canopy covering a portion of the space. If you must have shade, please arrive to class early to grab a spot!
Can I still bring a guest to class?
Absolutely! We are thrilled to be able to start offering the perk again of bringing guests for FREE! Guest passes are available to members who currently have an All Access Grassroots Pass. Virtual/Park Only Grassroots Passes are not eligible. All Access Members may bring an unlimited number of guests that are brand new to Grassroots Yoga, and one repeat guest each month. To register your guest, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that your guest is NOT REGISTERED until you receive a confirmation email from us.
Will classes be canceled due to weather?
Since we are practicing outdoors, we are now at the mercy of Mother Nature. If there are weather conditions severe enough to cancel classes, it will be noted on the schedule. If you are registered for a class that subsequently gets canceled, you will receive a notification by email (please make sure your email notifications are turned ON). We recommend always double checking your class registrations before you head out to the park in case of last minute cancelations.
Once you arrive…
Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to class and check in with a Grassroots Yoga representative.
Please be mindful of social distancing when setting up your mat. Members of the same household may set up closer together.
We highly recommend packing sunscreen, a hand towel and water. Dress in layers in case it’s warm or chilly outside.
If you are showing any signs of illness, please do not attend class.
