There are many philosophies behind the importance and practice of Pop-up yoga. Some yoga instructors lead pop-up classes to offer more accessible, adventurous and cost-effective classes in their communities. Other teachers offer Pop-up yoga classes as a spiritual discipline in order to encourage yogis to create peaceful, meditative environments wherever they are able.
Pop-up yoga can be impromptu or planned, and classes are routinely offered at low-cost or on a donation basis. In many cities, there are Pop-up yoga communities that get the word out on scheduled or unscheduled classes through social media, while some yoga professionals teach pop-up classes alone to cut down on studio costs, using social media to communicate with students on their offerings.
