Here at Happening Hamilton we aren’t just all about drinks, parties, and live music. Oh, no. If there is an exciting event occurring in town we will be all over it.
For example, Moksha Yoga in partnership with Hamilton Conservation Authority, will be running free yoga in the park for several Sundays this summer and fall.
This is a fantastic event as yoga can be on the pricey side, and here you can enjoy a class in Hamilton’s beautiful parks for free.
Free yoga taught by professionals, beautiful scenery, friends, sunshine… sounds like a recipe for many beautiful Sundays.
The full schedule can be found here.
