Admit it. You deserve a break from the holidays already and those snowman cookies you’ve gorging on lately certainly aren’t relieving any stress. Well, real holiday relief is on the way! In the spirit of the season, Lululemon on Rush & Walton has wrapped up the gift of free yoga classes, ceremoniously titled “12 Days of OM”, at a diverse set of Chicago based studios for all of us in need of a good Shavasana. We did a test run last night for the 2nd day of OM at Yoga Fuzion. Nestled in River North, Yoga Fuzion’s studio space has all the accouterments you would expect from the posh neighborhood. It boasts infrared heating technology, free towel and mat rental, and a special cushy moisture reducing floor. During our 1 hour yoga journey with Rachel, we delighted in some much needed detoxing twists (goodbye pumpkin pie!) and a toasty heated temp which was a surprise perk given the 20 degree freeze yesterday.
We sweated it up and still somehow looked glowy at the end. Ok, so maybe we snuck a brush in our gym bags and tussled our hair a bit before the “op”.
Following practice, we chatted it up with Jonna from Lululemon and indulged in mango lemonade, cucumber mint water and fresh veggies. She explained that class sign-ups are released each Friday and pointed us to the sign up link for “12 Days of OM” on Eventbrite. Jonna presented us a special gift in the #nohumbug Lululemon tradition, a cute coral colored sweat wicking pink stripe tank for Monica! ‘Tis the season for you to jump on the free yoga sleigh ride as well. Check out the “12 Days of Om” schedule below, back away from the cookies and throw those capri and tank in your gym bag! Next classes include Power Vinyasa Flow at Yoga Loft and Mat Pilates at Lateral Fitness.
