There’s nothing wrong with doing yoga at your local studio. Trust us, we love our regular mat sessions. But sometimes it’s good to shake up your routine. Imagine taking your down dog to a chocolate factory, distillery, or to a beautiful park. This doesn’t have to be just a fantasy. With PopUpAsana, you can channel your inner yogi in unexpected places all over Boston
Dreamed up by two Boston-area yoga instructors, Jenna Hill and Kristin Khederian, PopUpAsana aims to take “Yoga Outside the Box,” or at least outside the studio. Pop-up restaurants and shops are super popular right now, and Jenna and Kristin have taken the concept and applied it to yoga.
In taking yoga out of the studio and putting it on a restaurant’s rooftop or at a winery, PopUpAsana combines yoga, a mostly individual practice, with socializing. This creates a cozy community where you can come with your friends or to make new ones.
PopUpAsana brings yoga to places that might not have easy access to it otherwise – meaning your neighbor might be stretching out for the first time (so help ‘em out a little!) Plus, these yogis support local businesses by bringing groups into their spaces. Sounds like a recipe for success to us!
PopUpAsana’s events take place a few times a month at various locations in and around Boston. And as the weather gets nicer, PopUpAsana’s Park Yoga classes will be starting up two nights a week – on Mondays in South Boston and on Wednesdays in the Seaport. You can expect to get in rhythm with classic rock and hip-hop beats as you’re taken through the flow.
PopUpAsana events feature a one-hour all-levels vinyasa class with two instructors. This is yoga for everybody, whether you’ve been practicing for years or have never set foot on a yoga mat before. So if you can’t bend yourself into a human pretzel, never fear, the goal of the events is to have a good time and feel good doing it.
After savasana, get ready for even more fun. That’s when the cocktails, chocolate, and other goodies come out. Unlike at many yoga classes where everyone hurries away after, PopUpAsana encourages you to stick around to socialize.
PopUpAsana’s events sound awesome, right? So it won’t surprise you to hear that they tend to sell out super fast. The best way to stay updated is by checking the PopUpAsana website regularly. See you on the mat!
