Man, it seems like every month, SWEAT Fitness churns out a new free workout series for us all to enjoy. Case in point: Vinyasa and Vino, their new wine-filled yoga series, which will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. every Friday through the month of October at three SWEAT Fitness locations across the city. How’s that for the perfect way to wind down at the end of the week?
Here we are: It’s only Tuesday and we’re already looking longingly toward Hump Day (AKA Wednesday) and, by extension, Friday. Fortunately, we’ve got some Hump Day plans that will make this week feel like it’s whooshing by: Outdoor Beer Yoga at the Navy Yard, going down this Wednesday evening thanks to the kind souls at Nava Yoga Center. Oh, and did we mention that it’s free? Well, it is — beer, too! Go ahead and squeal with joy for a moment.
This Thursday, August 17th, we suggest you throw a little bit of yoga into your Thirsty Thursday plans (because balance). Henry’s Hard Sparkling, a new line of booze-infused sparkling water, is hosting a launch party at Old City’s Power Plant Productions (230 North 2nd Street, 3rd floor) where Fishtown’s Grace & Glory Yoga will be kicking things off with a yoga session. Andddd it’s all free! Meaning: This will be your cheapest Thursday night out in quite some time. #Winning
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.
Tomorrow, Saturday, June 10th, is Global Wellness Day and the folks at The Rittenhouse Spa & Club really want to pamper you. They’re helping you get in on the holiday festivities with 13 — yes, double digits! — free classes throughout the weekend. And if that’s not incentive enough to head on over to The Rittenhouse Spa & Club (210 West Rittenhouse Square), there will also be some complimentary post-workout prosecco in it for you.
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.
As relaxing as a yoga studio can be, there’s something especially calming about doing your sun salutations actually under the sun. That’s why we’ve rounded up over 30 regularly scheduled (and some pop-up) outdoor yoga classes in Philadelphia and the suburbs. Take note, then start filling in your calendar.
With the next few weeks come a bunch of fun and cheap (or, in a few cases, free!) outdoor workout series to add to our calendars. There are almost too many to keep track of! What a nice problem to have, right? Here, a handy guide to help you keep it all straight. Happy sweating! Read more »
