Your weekend fitness planner, complete with festive runs, rides and yoga classes to get you in the holiday spirit.
If you can find time between opening presents, guzzling egg nog and carving the Christmas ham, head to one of these Christmas Day yoga classes to get centered in the middle of the holiday chaos. Consider this handy-dandy guide our gift to you.
I am almost certain you have at least one yogi on your holiday-shopping list. Last year, I was the yogi on people’s lists, and it was a pretty sweet Christmas morning when I got a 10-class card for one of my favorite Philly studios.
You can always go the class-card route, of course, but if you want to buy something you can actually wrap, you’ve come to the right place. We asked Kristin Monzo, instructor extraordinaire at Anajli Power Yoga in Grad Hospital and Westmont, for her favorite gift ideas for yogis. Check out her creative picks (Note: No yoga mats here!) below.
Scrambling for weekend plans? We have you covered. Here are five ways to get your fit on this weekend in Philly.
It’s not often you hear of a yoga studio—or any business, for that matter—permanently lowering their prices, but Chadds Ford’s Transcend Wellness and Yoga has done just that: In September, the studio stopped charging a flat $18 fee for drop-in yoga and starting putting out a money jar where folks drop in what they can for a class. They call it “the sacred offering,” and the suggested donation is $10 per class, but if you only have $5, they’ll take it—they figure you’ll get them back later.
What better way to bounce back from a turkey-and-pie-filled Thanksgiving weekend than with a few Flywheel sessions, a new pair of running shoes or a sweet deal on yoga classes? Or, if you were slaving away in the kitchen for days on end, a massage—because you totally deserve it. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or crossing a few folks off your holiday gift list, we’ve got some great Cyber Monday deals, courtesy of local fitness studios, shops and spas that you won’t want to miss. And you won’t have to fight anyone for these deals, either. Praise the Internet, am I right?
The month in fitness and foodie events—get your calendars ready, people.
Three Philly Sweat Fitness locations are hosting boozy yoga classes on Friday that are free and open to the public. The classes are at 5:30 p.m. at the following locations: Sweat Queen Village (700 Passyunk Avenue), Sweat South Philly (1509 E. Passyunk Avenue) and Sweat Manayunk (4151 Main Street).
If your holiday weekend isn’t all booked up just yet, consider penciling in this fun day-trip event. Suburban yoga studio Nourishing Storm is hosting a yoga hike (yes, a yoga hike) this Saturday at Lundale Farm in Pottstown.
