If you’re a beer-loving yogi, boy do I have the event for you. Our friends over at Foobooz told us about the coolest event that’s happening next Sunday: the first-ever Detox Retox, courtesy of a team effort between CoreFitness and City Tap House. CoreFitness will be holding a 50-minute yoga class (a.k.a. the detox), taught by yoga instructors Cindy Brown and Sandy Aurelia, on the outdoor patio of City Tap House. Afterwards, everyone can head inside for a cold one (hence, the retox!).
What do you get when you combine yoga and beer? Detox Retox and some very happy Philadelphians. On August 3rd, Core Fitness and City Tap House are teaming up for the first time to put on an event that will be as rigorous as it is refreshing.
Starting at 10 a.m., join yoga instructors Cindy Brown and Sandy Aurelia for a 50-minute class on the outdoor patio of City Tap House, followed by a cold draft beer inside.
Group fitness instructor Lauren Rybas spoke to event saying, “[Core Fitness] has a social group of people that already go out after a workout, and we thought we would combine the two.” So whether you’re a yoga lover, beer drinker, or someone who just needs to spice up their Sundays, the first-ever Detox Retox has something for you. Tickets are $20, and include the class and a beer. Purchase them at the door or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
And for those of you looking to brunch afterwards (it is Sunday after all), stick around and check out the City Tap House’s brunch menu. Reservations are encouraged, but walk-ins will be accepted as well.
This Saturday, the folks at Pop Up Yoga Philly are hosting a $10 donation class outdoors at the Porch at 30th Street Station. Instructor Kate Goodyear—yup, the same gal doing the free classes up in Norristown—will lead, and funds raised from the event will go to the family of a 12-year-old boy who just had brain surgery on July 8th.
In today’s totally mind-blowing news: A study found that yogis burn the same amount of calories during a Bikram class—a 90-minute yoga class where a series of 26 poses is done in a 105-degree room—as they would on a brisk walk. If you just face-palmed thinking about all the times you’ve proudly walked out of class, dripping with sweat, and thought, I totally deserve pizza tonight! I just burned AT LEAST 1,000 calories!, trust me, you’re not alone.
Popular local yogi Kate Goodyear is launching a free yoga series this afternoon in Norristown that’ll run every Thursday until August 14th.
Shopping for workout gear is one of my favorite pastimes. It combines two of my great loves: shopping and fitness. Plus, what’s better motivation to work out than looking at (and inevitably, buying) workout gear? And while yes, yoga is less about having the trendiest leggings and more about inner peace, we can still ogle these gorgeous yoga mats, right? Right.
Good news, yogis: Nava Yoga Center just announced that its pay-what-you-can Tuesday morning classes in the Navy Yard’s Crescent Park will continue through September, and they’re even adding another class just like it on Thursday mornings. So now you can down-dog bright and early two days a week, and keep it up all through the dog days of summer, too. Pretty sweet, right? Read more »
