Yoga in Riverside Park

Yoga with Michelle

Featured on I Love the Upper West Side!

Hello! My name is Michelle Lehrman and I am a 200-hour certified yoga teacher. I teach at Crunch, and have also taught at  Athleta and Yoga Spa Lounge 1881. I am a certified Schwinn instructor and I teach spin at Crunch as well. Visit my website:!

You can find me on Instagram at @michellelehrman. Click here to be added to my mailing list!


Outdoor classes are $10 per student. Please pay on the day of class - if we need to cancel for weather, it becomes difficult for me to track!

Payments can be made via Venmo or Zelle. You can pay anytime for online classes. Please pay on the same day for outdoor classes (in case we need to adjust for weather). 

My Venmo is @Michelle-Lehrman and my cell number for Zelle will be included in post-class e-mails.

If you are out of work or your income has been impacted, please let me know. You are still welcome in class!


I primarily teach power yoga, and will make accommodations to the practice to account for heat and humidity. We will connect movement with breath, and I will always offer modifications. All levels are welcome!

Classes take place in Riverside Park between 93rd & 94th Streets (enter the park at 91st or 95th Street). There is a nice flat area with plenty of shade. A screenshot and photo are included in weekly announcement e-mails.

We will practice social distancing and I will not offer hands-on adjustments. Masks should be worn to and from class, and you are welcome to remove your mask once you are on your mat and 6' away from other practitioners. If you come with someone you live with, you can practice next to each other.

You will need:

  • Yoga mat
  • Yoga block (optional and recommended)
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray (optional and recommended)
  • Hand towel and/or mat towel
  • Water
  • Mask for before and after class (optional - no longer required as of 5/17/21)
  • Layered clothing (recommended for colder days)
  • Socks with traction (recommended for colder days)
  • Hand sanitizer (optional and recommended)
  • Towel or blanket to place under your mat (optional and recommended)

Empty classes will be canceled 12 hours prior to the class start time. Decisions to cancel based on weather forecast (rain or heat advisory) will be made 2 hours prior to class.


If you need to cancel for any reason with less than 6 hours before the class start time, or if you are signed up and do not come, please pay for your spot. This policy is on the honor system - I will not reach out other than with the automated e-mail that goes out after classes. You do not need to pay for classes that are canceled due to weather.


Beginning on October 4th, 2021, I will be teaching on Zoom at 6pm ET every Monday on Terri Barnett's platform. Please visit Terri's website to register and pay at least 10 minutes prior to the class start time. A playlist will be provided before class begins, so you can use music if you like. As always - if you are out of work or your finances have been impacted, please let me know. I want to remain available to everyone. You can contact me directly here.

Regular online classes on have a suggested contribution of $10, which can be sent via Venmo or Zelle. Students who have registered will receive the class link and an optional playlist an hour before class begins.

You will need:

  • Yoga mat
  • Hand towel and/or mat towel
  • Water
  • Yoga block(s) (optional and recommended)
    • If you do not have a yoga block, improvise! You can use a water bottle, dumbbell, or any other sturdy prop.
  • Meditation cushion or pillow (optional)
  • Anything else that helps you! Candle, oil diffuser, etc.
