Hi, my loves! Are you a fan of yoga? How 'bout booze? WHAT ABOUT BOTH?!
This Friday night, the Chase Park Plaza's Starlight Room will be overrun with yogis and their friends to help support a great cause. This Fundraising Bash is being hosted by Yoga Buzz STL, a local small business that focuses on "creating wellness throughout the community by making yoga accessible to every body." The event kicks off at 6pm with an hour-long, all-levels class at 7pm, led by Yoga Buzz founder and instructor, Elle Potter. After the class, attendees can mix and mingle, sample tasty food and beverages from local vendors, bid on silent auction items, and enter raffles to win giveaways!
Initially created in response to the need for a safe space for beginners to have fun and learn yoga, Elle has since elevated the experience to quite the event. Many Yoga Buzz classes take place in breweries, bars, pubs, restaurants, you name it, and have two parts: an hour-long yoga class that is fun and challenging for both veterans and newbies alike, and then a socializing session that is usually focused on boozy drinks and chit chat. I've been referring to it as "getting bendy and buzzy!" I attended the night held at Frazer's a few months ago, and it was so much fun.
The Bash on Friday aims to raise funds for the Yoga Buzz Scholarship Fund. This fundraising effort helps provide yoga practice opportunities to those who may not otherwise be able to afford them. Let's face it - practicing yoga can be expensive! The class passes and drop-ins can pile up. I think this is an amazing little scholarship fund to bring yoga to interested parties who shy away from the cost.
So why am I getting involved and offering you a chance to win two free tickets to the event? Because I'm DJing it! I will spinning some smooth tunes during the class, and then providing the upbeat atmosphere for the party afterwards!
Here's how to enter:
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what your favorite yoga pose is, or what pose you'd love to learn. You can totally google them if you're a newbie!
You can enter between now and Thursday, March 26th at 12pm. On Thursday at 3pm, I will randomly choose from the email entries, and announce on my social media accounts as well as shoot you an email back congratulating you! Because you'll win two tickets, you can take a buddy!
