Sutra Midtown's Yoga in the Park with Black Carl

Sutra Midtown is celebrating its fourth anniversary this month. Part of the celebration included the return of yoga in the park, but with a twist. Local band Black Carl performed live during a class led by Danielle at Coronado Historic Park. And it was free!

More than 100 yogis turned out for the one-of-a-kind performance/yoga session. Sutra sold concert tees ($20) to commemorate the occasion. Black Carl's new album, "The Wheel," was for sale too ($10).

The yoga event was the day after the hottest day of the year so far, but you wouldn't know it. It was breezy and overcast. A few vinyasas warmed yogis right up.

Black Carl's mellow music blended well with the yoga sequences and the instructor's words.

As you can probably guess, if there's a free yoga class held in Phoenix, I'm there. Next up is Sutra's classes at the McDowell Mountain Music Festival on March 23-24. See you there.
