Yoga in Fort Point.

With the city smack dab in the middle of summer, it’s hard to justify being sluggish, especially with a beach weather weekend approaching.

Other classes include a mix of yoga and Pilates.

The series will run from 5:30 p.m until 6 p.m. every Tuesday through August 21, and on Tuesdays from Sept. 11 through Sept. 25 at either the Children’s Wharf and Atlantic Wharf, depending on the day.

Exercise locations alternate between Atlantic Wharf 290 Congress Street, Children’s Wharf Park 308 Congress Street, and Moakley Courthouse Park One Courthouse Way.

  • July 31st             Children’s Wharf Park      BOOT CAMP
