Whether you prefer to find inner peace while glowing in the dark, in a public park, or with a beer that's dark (or light, but that didn't rhyme), there's a yoga (or hooping) event for you this week.
On Friday, July 24th, Co-Motion Studio is hosting its second annual Glo-Motion event from 7 to 10 p.m. The glow-in-the-dark party will include two 30-minute yoga sessions, led by Meredith Melvin and LaurieJean Weldon, and a 30-minute hula-hooping lesson by Adrienne Holland. (Classes will be suitable for all skill levels.) Glo-Motion closes out with a post-class dance party with DJ Intuigroove. Admission is $30 at the door. Some glowsticks and body paint will be provided, but Holland is encouraging people to bring their own to make sure there's enough to go around. Hoops and mats will be available, but those who have their own are encouraged to bring them.
"Show up glowed-up, and bring your party," Holland says.
On Saturday, July 25th, Lululemon Athletica is hosting a free outdoor yoga class at the Levitt Shell from 9:15 to 10:30 a.m. Delta Groove Yoga owner Olivia Lomax will lead the all-level vinyasa class. Sibella, a three-woman band that utilizes cello and conga drums, will provide the music, and Midtown's soon-to-open I Love Juice bar will be handing out free juice. Mats will not be provided, so attendees should bring their own.
Every Thursday at 6 p.m., Bendy Brewski Yoga hosts 45-minute beginner classes at High Cotton's taproom. After class, yogis cool off with a pint of craft beer. The class is $15, which can be paid through the Memphis Yoga for Beer Lovers page on meetup.com. A few yoga mats are available.
