I am reaaaaally bad at keeping secrets. Ask any of my friends and they will tell you: I’m the worst. So, me holding this information in for the past few months and resisting the urge to scream it from the rooftops required Olympic-level mental strength, if I do say so myself. (Why yes, I am patting myself on the back right now.) But now I FINALLY get to share it with you guys. Here goes: Starting Tuesday, July 11th, we are teaming up with the wonderful folks from Queen Village’s Three Queens Yoga to put on a free weekly outdoor yoga series — Be Well Philly’s Summer Yoga Flow — at Dilworth Park.

Say it with me: YESSSSSSS.

Believe it or not, the sun is slated to start reaaallly peeking its head out from behind the clouds next week (we’re talking high 80s and sunny), meaning it will be warm enough — nay pleasant! — to roll your yoga mat out outdoors on the regular.

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.

I could honestly cry tears of joy right now. Read more »
