Do This: Free Lunchtime Yoga in Center City PHS Pop-Up Garden

Strap your yoga mat to your work bag this week.

It’s that time of year again, folks. This week at the Comcast Center’s West Plaza, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has designed and created another pop-up garden in celebration of the annual Comcast Cares Day. And it sounds like quite the sight: PHS has decked out the garden with over 20 perennial plants, including pansies, chamomile, mint and five types of lettuce with some wooden botanical cutouts added for flair. And get this: They’re doing everyone in the area a solid by providing free lunchtime yoga sessions on Wednesday and Friday. 

This Wednesday, April 19th, from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. and Friday, April 21st, from 11:30 a.m. to noon, folks are invited to enjoy a quick and free 30-minute yoga session — just bring your own mat. Be sure to show up a little early to save your spot because there’s a limit of only 35 folks per session and it’s first-come, first-served. (Plus, a little extra midday outdoor time is bound to make your day a little better.)

If you happen to get stuck in a meeting or are behind on finishing up some project at work and miss the yoga sessions (hey, it happens), fret not: You can still enjoy a nice sit in the pop-up garden any time of day. Bring your lunch or some outdoor-friendly work and breathe in the fresh air at the PHS pop-up garden at the Comcast Center until Saturday, April 22nd.
