When summer time rolls around in Austin (which is more like mid-May), a lot of really fun FREE outdoor activities start to pop up all over town. The flagship Whole Foods store downtown on Lamar is hosting free Sunset Yoga sessions each Wednesday of June. I went last week for the kickoff, and I’ll be back tonight as my friend Lindsay will be teaching the class along with the Thievery Corporations’s El John Selector.
I showed up super early last week, thinking it started at 8. And it was probably a good thing I got there when I did because the early birds got first pick of all the food and drink goodies. They had Beanitos chips, kale chips, Rain Water, kombucha (ugh, you know how I feel about kombucha) and full tubs of different hummus flavors! I was joking with my mat mate Jason that I should have brought a cooler. 😛
It was a super laid back yoga session with a live band, and they’ll be doing it each week up on the Whole Foods Plaza for the rest of the month. Teachers from Blue Honey Yoga will rotate through with different live music. Get there early to stake out a spot and get your hands on the goods first. Oh, and come say Hi if you see me tonight! I’ve got a teal Lulu The Mat.
