Have you heard of YogaBuzz? They’ve been hosting cool, collaborative yoga events, like yoga + beer, rooftop yoga + chocolate, Star Wars yoga, yoga at the Peabody Opera House, all over the Lou for some time now. I’ve meant to go to one, but just never found the time, until this morning. I dragged my sleepy self out of bed and out the door for a free, 7am yoga class in Kiener Plaza, and I’m so glad I did.
With a view of the Arch in the background, our yoga instructor Jamie Austin led us through a rise and shine yoga class, while musician JD Hughes strummed away on his acoustic guitar. Afterward, Big Heart Tea Co. was on hand to pass out samples of their refreshing Karma Chamomilieon iced tea. Overall, it was a beautiful way to ease into the day.
This summer Yoga Buzz, in collaboration with CityArchRiver, is hosting a free Health and Wellness fitness series every Thursday at Kiener Plaza, alternating between yoga, cardio dance, and boot camp classes. If you’ve ever wanted to try yoga, or just want to shake things up with an outdoor class, this is a fun way to do it. The hard part is getting out of bed, but the view is worth it. See you on the mat!
