If you're looking to break out of your workout rut, Chicago has you covered this summer.

Aerial Grant Park
Chicago shines in the summertime. There are so many things to see and do — many of which don't cost a dime! From a day at the beach to a yoga class on the pavilion, here are six (totally FREE!) things to see and do this summer in Chicago!

Rooted Center

Electronic dance music and yoga are, in many eyes, polar opposites when it comes to their intended results. EDM is loud, vacillating and high energy. Yoga is a calm, introspective exercise. It's easy to see how the two elements wouldn't belong together but "Techno Yoga" class at the Rooted Self Expression Center in Wicker Park is all one needs to reconsider. 

Chicago Kids and Family Yoga Fest

Promoting sound body and mind, yoga is among the most popular methods of honing one's strength, flexibility and mental balance. Taking yoga one step further is Chicago Kids Yoga Fest, whose message promotes compassion, community and non-violence. The First Annual Chicago Kids and Family Yoga Fest, August 17 from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m., invites the city of Chicago and Chicagoland area to Garfield Park Conservatory for a day of family activities!
