It seems as the Miami yoga scene evolves, more yogis and yoginis are coming to the surface spreading their good vibes and knowledge of which we need more of. With such a powerful practice, the movement has become just as strong — the abundance in local community yoga classes weren’t as accessible just last year! The combination of supporting local and the talent that makes up our Magic City has opened up trust and comfort in businesses collaborating. No competition, simply working together towards a goal, building awareness, and good times all around.
As an active yoga student myself (and like many of you I’ve spoken to) we can’t always make it to a class or commit to a studio’s membership, am I right? The beauty of yoga is YOU are in control of your practice and can do so anywhere. With the views Miami has to offer, it feels incredible to participate and practice a little gratitude out in the beautiful city we call home.
For the next five months, Leggings Lounge assembled a series of yoga & happy hour taking place at none other than the W Miami Hotel Rooftop completely COMPLIMENTARY. Picture this: an hour of yoga on the 50th floor (not scary I promise) and setting your intention during Miami’s golden hour. Overlooking Brickell in your downward dog has never felt better, trust me! As I’m sure you’re excited, here’s a bit of namaste advice I’ll gladly hook you up with when it comes to outdoor yoga because you’re going to need it:
- Tip #1: Arrive 15-20 minutes before class is set to begin. You want to get situated in a good spot and like most yogis, a piece of personal space.
- Tip #2: Bring your own mat and face towel! Some events offer to provide a mat or towels but most don’t. Go prepared, better to be safe than sorry.
- Tip #3: Water or coconut water to stay hydrated. Summer time is in full effect please don’t pass out.
- Tip #4: Stay off your phone. Enjoy class. Be present. (take photos during happy hour 😉 )
Leggings Lounge has a variety of vendors on site during the event, where you can shop local artisan goods and get your hair braided by the GlamSquad as you #NamastayandSip. Reserve your spot for Leggings Lounge Yoga + Happy Hour . May the light within all of us be the light within Miami, Namaste for more community yoga!
