Lululemon Teams Up with the Fillmore for Yoga-and-Music Event (For a Good Cause!)  

You may want to schedule a mental health day on August 8th.

In my opinion, there are few better ways to spend a Tuesday evening than by hunkering down on the couch for Indian food paired with a hefty dose of whatever crazy the Real Housewives of Wherever is serving up that week. (Hi, my name is Adjua Fisher and I’m addicted to trashy TV.) But Lululemon Philadelphia and the Fishtown music venue the Fillmore have teamed up for a Tuesday event that might make me leave the house. On Tuesday, August 8th, Lululemon will be holding Here to Be, “a yoga and music experience,” at the Fillmore — and it sounds positively lovely. And much less stressful than watching Bethenny and Ramona argue over who can and can’t go on the Mexico trip. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, be glad you’ve escaped the pull of the Real Housewives franchise.)

The yoga-and-music-filled event will run from 3 to 11 p.m., so you may want to find a way skip out of work early (call it a mental health day). First, sign-in and live Kirtan music will run from 3 to 4 p.m., then five hour-long yoga classes and a meditation class will take over the Fillmore, in both the Main Hall and the Ajax hall, between 4 and 7:30 p.m., led by yoga instructors from around the city who you may already know and love. Think: Mariel Freeman, Daniel Cordua, Stacia Nero, Jake Panasevich and Brittany Policastro. (You can see the full line-up of classes and who’s teaching when here.) Then, at 7:45 p.m., Daphne Lyon will lead a closing meditation — after that it’s all about the music. Starting at 8, a DJ will spin tunes, then local bands will take the stage until 11 p.m.

What a nice freakin’ Tuesday evening, right?

Tickets will run you $26 for just the music portion, $76 for yoga and music or $126 for VIP tickets. We know: A little bit pricier than an evening spent on the couch. But it’s for a good cause: All proceeds from the event will go to support Roots2Rise, a Philly-based non-profit that works to bring yoga and mindfulness to underserved communities throughout the city. As the event description says, “We’ll practice, we’ll connect, we’ll learn and then we’ll celebrate, all in support of Roots2Rise bringing more yoga and mindfulness to underserved communities throughout the city.” We can dig it.
