Attention all broke yoga lovers: Lululemon Athletica is presenting a FREE yoga festival on Governor's Island!
Solstice in Times Square
Lululemon, who is known for their free classes in their retails stores and and in various city locations like Bryant Park, is hosting it's first annual yoga festival called Escape to Yoga Island. Similar to the Lucy sponsored Solstice in Times Square, another popular (but incredibly packed) free yoga festival, Escape to Yoga Island will be an all-day yoga heaven from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, August 6th. There will be live music to the 60 minute open level classes on the main stage, as well as a variety of 90 minute intensive classes, including Yoga for Athletes and a Power Vinyasa class, on a 2nd stage. Runners can also enjoy a run around the island starting at 10:30. You are required to bring your own mat to the event (no mat giveaways, Lululemon?) and be sure to bring lots of water, sunscreen and some food, as it appears there will not be many vendors at this event.
