FREE Yoga-ahh Classes in Boca-ahh Raton

If you’ve read Modern Boca Mom’s most recent post on Boca  Mom stereotypes, then you know that I probably fall into the “Free Mom” category. If I didn’t before, then I certainly do now! 😉

As a result, I’ve decided to put together a list of all of the incredible free Boca Raton yoga classes that Boca & Delray Beach have to offer!

Yoga has long been known to provide endless benefits for both the mind and body. I always feel best when I include it in my daily life. This can get pretty pricey, so I try to take advantage of the free Boca Raton yoga classes to fill in some of the gaps and keep me on the mat!

The Fair Trade Boutique:

This awesome gem of a boutique not only provides the latest and greatest in sustainable apparel and accessories, they also provide two (you heard me) FREE Yoga classes each week.

Wednesday evenings at 5:30pm you can participate in an awesome Restorative Yoga session. Saturday mornings at 10:30am you can catch their FREE Vinyasa class.

Bonus – Saturday afternoon they host “Sunshine Yoga” a toddler yoga class ($12 charge).

Sunset Yoga on the Beach:

Atlantic Dunes Beach is one of our favorite beaches in Delray. Every Wednesday at 5:30pm, Jessica Om treats local residents to a free yoga class at sunset. A great way to start your week roundup and settle in for a relaxing weekend.

Sanborn Square:

Every Saturday morning at 9am, the ever popular Leslie Glickman teaches a yoga class for all levels to a packed house. This is THE place to be for early morning yoga on Saturdays. Leslie is the very life of Yoga Journey, the studio located on the 5th floor of the Wyndham Boca Raton.

Take a Yoga Journey…


Yoga Journey WM

I can barely move my arms today.
I mean, in the best possible way of course! You know, that post-workout soreness (not pain), confirming that yes, you actually DID do the correct moves in class. Well, I have Leslie Glickman to thank, the founder of Boca Raton’s own Yoga Journey, located in the Wyndham Boca Raton Hotel.

Many of you may know her from the yoga class she teaches in the park (Boca’s Sanborn Square) every Saturday morning at 9AM.
 Sanborn Square RS
This Modern Boca Mom knows her from making the Wyndham Boca my home away from home- hello Farmer’s Table & Trend Tea!
Leslie invited me to take one of her classes this week, so I took the elevator up to the 5th floor and joined her devoted South Florida followers for an hour of Monday Vinyasa Basics.
Wow! Yoga Journey is popular! Hotel guests are also invited to take any yoga class as well.


Having been out of the yoga game for some time, I really liked this class because it allowed attendees to have a live dialogue with Leslie. I mean, she is the expert after all and if you’re not doing the yoga poses correctly, why do them at all?


Did you know that Yoga Journey has called the Wyndham Boca home for almost TWO YEARS?

A Day in the Life of a Boca Concierge Pediatrician

A Day in the Life of a Boca Concierge Pediatrician WM

It’s no secret that I dig Boca VIPediatrics. The business is run by a Boca MOMpreneur, they recently had their official grand opening as active members of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce AND Mr. VIPediatrics himself, Dr. Chad Rudnick, is available to his patients 24/7.

YES. 24/7.

So, that got me thinking, what exactly does a typical “work day” look like for a Boca concierge pediatrician? Does he eat? Sleep? Have time to sit by the pool or read a magazine?

I decided to ask him… Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Boca Concierge Pediatrician
