The weather gods were on our side yesterday, and we couldn’t be more grateful. (Thank you, weather gods!) Last night, Be Well Philly Underground teamed up with the folks from DIG Yoga and Hotel Monaco’s Stratus Rooftop Lounge for a rooftop yoga class followed by a complimentary happy hour. Despite a forecast of thunderstorms, the sun came out, there was a nice breeze and, yes, it was just as glorious as it sounds.
The evening kicked off with the lovely Mariel Freeman of DIG Yoga treating us all to a sweaty, killer (damn you, forearm planks), hilarious — what other yoga teacher you know uses the phrase “When in doubt, stick it out like Kim Kardashian” to guide you in your practice? — yoga class that was simply awesome. I kid you not, during Savasana, I was so beat I almost passed out. And I’m pretty sure I’m not alone.
After the class, Undergrounders got their hands on some very well-earned free wine, courtesy of Anew Wine, and Cucumber Fizz cocktails whipped up by the bartenders at Stratus Lounge. Because life is all about balance — right, people?
Everyone went home with a Be Well Philly towel (oh-so-necessary after that class), a free class-pass to DIG, and some lucky yogis left with a brand spankin’ new Lululemon yoga mat.
It was the best night ever, if we do say so ourselves.
BIG round of applause to everyone who came out to get their downward dog on, and an extra-extra-large thanks to our friends at DIG Yoga and Stratus Lounge for hosting our Undergrounders! Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go relive the night over and over again with photos. You should, too — photos from the event are below.
