Remember a few weeks ago, when we told you about Fairmount’s soon-to-open yoga studio, Priya Hot Yoga? Well, the studio—which comes complete with a front-of-house cafe, a lounge area, and, eventually, babysitting—is set to open shop on October 25th, and they’re hosting a big bash with free yoga, and lots of food and drink samples to celebrate. Um, yes, please.
It’s not every day that a free outdoor yoga class comes complete with a light show. Here’s the deal: This Thursday, October 2nd, Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood will be hosting a free outdoor yoga class with a pink-luminary lighting ceremony in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
It doesn’t get much better than this: Wednesday evening, Lululemon is hosting a free outdoor yoga class followed by a sunset showing of Mrs. Doubtfire. Yoga plus a billion belly-ache-inducing laughs equals the greatest core workout ever—am I right?
Looking to make your Shore vacay even better? Head to Ocean City on Saturday, August 9th, for Yoga and Fashion Fusion, a collaborative effort between Frey Boutique, which just opened an OC location, and Lululemon Wayne. At 9 a.m., there will be a complimentary morning yoga class inside Frey, taught by instructor Cailin Callahan. After an hour of relaxing yoga, you can enjoy refreshments and shop to your heart’s content; both Frey’s collections and featured Lululemon pieces will be on hand.
I’ll be honest, when I show up for a free fitness class, I’m not usually expecting all that much. And if the class isn’t great, I’m sort of okay with it. I mean, it is free, after all. If it is a good class, I feel like I lucked out. If it’s an amazing class? Well, I haven’t really experienced a so-amazing-my-jaw-dropped free fitness class.
Scratch that—I hadn’t experienced one, until this past weekend. On Saturday morning, I made my way over to Urban Yoga Philly’s free yoga class in South Kensington and, let me tell you, it was freakin’ awesome.
Get ready to squeal with joy, King of Prussia yogis. The King of Prussia District has teamed up with the folks of Lululemon and Stillpoint Yoga Studios to bring you a free outdoor yoga class, held at 1000 First Avenue (at the Maschellmac Office Complex), every Tuesday evening. And the good news doesn’t stop there: Each week, the 45-minute class will be followed by a free healthy happy hour with refreshments courtesy of Wegmans.
The yoga session will begin every Tuesday at 5:15 p.m. and all levels of yogis are welcome. Just grab your mat, a towel and a bottle of a water and head to First Avenue ready to get your sweat on. The weekly class, which kicked off last Tuesday, will run through the end of July. You can find more info here.
Calling all yogis: Thanks to the folks at Nava Yoga Center, you can consider your Tuesday morning workouts covered. From May 27th through July 1st, the studio will be hosting an all-levels yoga class every Tuesday Morning at Crescent Park in the Navy Yard. And the best part? It won’t cost you a dime.
The free hour-long class will kick off bright and early every Tuesday morning at 7 a.m. To get your downward dog on, you just need to pre-register here and show up with your own mat, plus any other props you like to use. And we’ll keep our fingers crossed that rain doesn’t ruin any of these lovely outdoor yoga sessions, but in the case of bad weather, the class will be held indoors at Nava Yoga Center, instead. Happy hand-standing, friends!
Good news, yogis: This Sunday, the Philly Yoga Factory is partnering with Lululemon Walnut Street to host a free Synergy Partner Yoga class—a therapeutic yoga that incorporates elements of Thai massage, yoga and Capoeira, all done with a partner. Sounds like a nice way to start your Sunday off, huh?
The free class will be from 10 to 11 a.m. at Bikram Yoga of Philadelphia (where all Philly Yoga Factory classes are held) on Sansom Street. No need to RSVP. Simply head to the studio Sunday morning to join in on the fun. If you don’t have a partner lined up, no worries: They’ll pair you up with someone when you get there. And if it turns out Synergy Partner Yoga is totally your jam, you’re in luck: Philly Yoga Factory will officially add a weekly donation-based Synergy Partner Yoga class to their roster starting June 8th.
Well, geez! I didn’t think it could get any better than six days of free yoga every week at Race Street Pier, but it totally just did. Malik Wilson, the Dhyana Yoga teacher who helms the Race Street program, just told me they’re also running free (donations welcome) yoga classes on the Schuylkill Banks, starting April 5th.
