Photo Recap: Last Night’s VERY Sweaty Rooftop #BWPUnderground Event

Photo by Theresa Regan

Yesterday was two things that can make for a pretty miserable time: It was Monday (insert eye roll here) AND the temperatures were in the 90s (hi, frizzy hair and pit stains). BUT it was still a great day for us and we have Be Well Philly Underground to thank for that. Yesterday evening, we held our last Be Well Philly Underground event of the season (don’t worry — we’ll be back in September!) on the rooftop at Stratus Lounge. And despite the heat and any case of the Mondays we might’ve had, it was a really good time.

Last night, I couldn’t fall asleep until 11:30 p.m., and that’s like 4 a.m. in my world, which is filled with  premature Grandma-like tendencies like going to bed at 8:45 p.m. on the regular. Why couldn’t I fall asleep, you ask? Well, because I was still buzzing from all the good vibes I soaked up at last night’s Be Well Philly Underground Sweat + Sip + Shop event with City Fitness and the lululemon Local Fishtown.

You know what’s better than pressing snooze on a Monday morning? Rolling out of bed to go punch stuff. More specifically, rolling out of bed to go punch a heavy bag at Rittenhouse’s CKO Kickboxing. And you know what’s even BETTER than that? Punching things at CKO Kickboxing and then getting your savasana on at the neighboring CorePower Yoga. And that’s exactly how our morning starting at our Be Well Philly Underground Sunrise Kickboxing and Savasana event today, alongside a crew of dedicated Be Well Philly Undergrounders who will officially serve as our Monday early-morning workout motivation heroes from here on out.

Another month, another Be Well Philly Underground secret pop-up fitness event in the books. This month, we teamed up with the folks from Life Time Athletic (yep, the ones opening three giant fancy new fitness clubs in the Philly area) and Pure Fare for a very (very, very, very) sweaty workout followed by breakfast-for-dinner snacks at the lovely Independence LIVE space on Market Street.

Things we wish were a part of every single day: yoga done to Drake music and fancy — simple syrup-free! — cocktails courtesy of Spirit Forward. Those two wonderful things are exactly what we got at last night’s first Be Well Philly Underground event of the year, and I have to say, it was LOVELY.

We have to say: Yesterday’s weather was miserable. Rainy. Cold. Windy. Yesterday’s weather was the kind of weather where you walk outside and literally feel like life is slapping you across the face. So we have to give a GIANT round of applause to everyone who braved that slaps-you-across-the-face rain to make it to our Be Well Philly Underground Holiday Shopping Party. You can’t see us, but we are giving you all of the virtual hugs right now.

Fact: Doing Yoga at Eastern State Penitentiary Should Be on Your Bucket List

Confession: I am not a Halloween person. The last time I put any ounce of effort into a costume was when I was a “pop star” — no pop star in particular, just a pop star — in seventh grade. Clearly, even then, I was not committed.

So when we were thinking about our Be Well Philly Underground event for October, I wanted it to be in the theme of October — and that theme is Halloween, duh — without being too pumpkin-y and costume-y and, well, Halloween-y. So when our lovely events coordinator Kaylie, who many of you Undergrounders have met, suggested Eastern State Penitentiary, the former prison in Fairmount, as the space for October Underground event, I was sold. It’s spooky. But not cheesy. Perfect.

We got to planning and luckily it all came together. And man, our October Be Well Philly Underground event, an outdoor yoga class in the prison yard space of Eastern State Penitentiary led by the lovely folks of Fairmount’s Yoga Habit, was even cooler (and MUCH spookier) than I’d imagined it would be.
