This weekend, join hundreds of Philadelphia’s yogis in the great outdoors for a daylong celebration of yoga, music and nature during the Wanderlust Yoga Block Party, Saturday, September 7.
From noon to 8 p.m., The Piazza at Schmidt’s plays host to large, free yoga classes led by this city’s top instructors, plus live music and even some surprise performances.
Part of the internationally traveling Wanderlust Festival, the largest multi-day yoga and music festival in the world, the Yoga Block Party offers up an inner-city snippet of the four-day full-on Wanderlust Festival, which is held more than half a dozen times a year around the world — including in Chile last February and in Austin, Texas this coming November.
In Philadelphia, Wanderlust welcomes 10 of the area’s best yoga instructors including Simon Park, a Dhyana Yoga-based instructor, and Dig Yoga co-owners Sue Elkind and Mariel Freeman.
Plus, flow to tunes from live DJs Gregg Nyce and Mr. Sonny James and look for special guests like AcroYoga instructor Jean-Jacques Gabriel and folks from Martial Posture martial arts studio.
The entire event is totally free, but registration is required.
Check out the full schedule here and register online here for one or more of the four class sessions.
