It’s that time of year again, folks. This week at the Comcast Center’s West Plaza, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has designed and created another pop-up garden in celebration of the annual Comcast Cares Day. And it sounds like quite the sight: PHS has decked out the garden with over 20 perennial plants, including pansies, chamomile, mint and five types of lettuce with some wooden botanical cutouts added for flair. And get this: They’re doing everyone in the area a solid by providing free lunchtime yoga sessions on Wednesday and Friday. Read more »
Yogis, rejoice! Our friends over at Honeygrow’s HgAthletics are teaming up with PLUSgives and yoga instructor Alex Holmes tonight, February 22nd, at 6:30 p.m. for a free pop-up vinyasa flow class. And yes, you are invited.
30th Street Station is sort of the opposite of a yoga studio: it’s generally pretty loud, there are absolutely no candles, and there is always a chance a stranger will run you over with their rolling suitcase in a rush to make their train. So we can’t decide whether doing yoga at 30th Street Station sounds really cool or the opposite of relaxing or a little bit of both. We bring this up because next Wednesday, January 11th, Honeygrow’s hgAthletics and PLUSgives will be teaming up to host a free pop-up yoga session inside the train station. And one thing it will definitely be is a unique experience.
You know what’s better than doing outdoor yoga in the summertime? Doing outdoor yoga next to a pool that you can dip your toes in afterward. And lucky for you, Swim Philly, the city initiative responsible for revamping four of the city’s public pools this year, just announced a schedule of free fitness happening at those pools along with the Francisville pop-up pool all summer long. And yes: Said schedule DOES include poolside yoga.
I could honestly cry tears of joy right now. Read more »

If you’re currently holding back tears because all your friends are packing their bathing suits to head down the Shore and you’re stuck here in Philly for the holiday weekend, this should make you feel better: On Monday evening, Queen Village’s Three Queens Yoga is doing the public service of holding a free NamaSLAY yoga class. What does that mean, you ask?

If you work anywhere near the Comcast Center, your lunch breaks are about to get a whole lot prettier — at least for a few days: Next week, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will be taking over Comcast Center’s West Plaza, at 18th Street and JFK Boulevard, and covering it with hyacinths, daffodils, wheat grass, river birch trees, and more for their Comcast Cares Day Pop Up Garden.
