Yogasmic

On Tuesday night I took my passion for large group classes to the extreme. The new Lululemon at West End hosted a Yogasm event at International Market Square. All were welcome to come and practice yoga for free! I LOVE free! Their goal was to get 1,000 yogis all practicing at the same time. Not sure if they hit that number but the place was defiantly filled. Here are a few photos from the event:

I think my favorite thing about things like this is realizing how big our community is. There were so many yogis I had never seen before. I know I shouldn’t be surprised as I really only practice at three locations and I know there are SO many studios in town, but I never really grasped how many yogis are around Mpls.

I met one lovely lady next to me who is doing great things for this community. She’s started a blog where she interviews different teachers, studio owners, and eventually wants to create a hub for all things yoga. Her site is TC Yogi and I recommend you check it out if you’re in the area. Check it out even if you’re not – lots of cool stuff.

That’s all for now – hope you all are having a groovy day!

Come One, Come All!

Tonight I’ll be getting my Yogasm on with about 1,000 other yogis. Sounds kinky huh?!!?

from Lululemon

Lululemon is putting on a free class in Downtown Minneapolis in attempts to break the record for largest yoga class. I’m stocked since I’m 1) obsessed with Lulu (clothes and overall brand); 2) Lots of twitter/blog friends will be there that I’m jonesing to meet in person; 3) Huge yoga class for FREE (and you know my take on big classes)!

So if you’re in the area please come… I’ll be the tall blond(ish) on the bright orange mat!

More details: Please help lululemon athletica make history as we attempt the largest yoga class in the USA!

The class will be led by lululemon ambassador Rita Katona of CorePower Yoga, with the assistance of her fellow Minneapolis ambassadors. This is a complimentary class for all levels!

Time Out Yogis

The first, but probably not the last, non-yoga post:

This weekend I had the honor to co-host a baby shower for my dearest friend Nicole. She is due May 16th and is so stinking cute! Because I’m not exactly a domestic-goddess (actually, not even in the slightest) I had to take a minute to post the cute cupcakes I made.

Nicole got so many adorable gifts and lots of great books to read to the future yogi (books instead of cards).
