Downward Dining: Yoga For Foodies at Studio 1342
Here's a new way to get your om on: A pop-up yoga/foodie event called Downward Dining will be having it's second gathering this Saturday at Studio 1342. The hour-long, all-levels class will be taught by Lululemon Ambassador and YogaWorks-trained instructor Clio Manuelian, and will be followed by an appropriately-healthy vegetarian meal catered by Clean Plates.
Downward Dining sold out its first event earlier this Spring at Siren Studios. The Friday night pop-up, which was catered by M Cafe, drew in a packed studio of yogis that practiced to an upbeat soundtrack that ranged from the Rolling Stones to Skrillex. (Dub step and downward dog: Who knew?)
Jessie Rubin, the event's creator, is trying to bring the community together with these hybrid health and wellness events.
"It's a constant goal and dream to create events I want to go to myself -- ones that are enriching, about community, places where you can leave with a new friend and feeling slightly uplifted," says Rubin. "And as an avid yoga practitioner, I figured I'd found something I was passionate enough about to bring others together for."
Downward Dining will take place this Saturday, June 16 from 11:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Tickets are $35, and you can get them here. The swag bags from the last event -- filled with all sorts of edible treats, yoga gear, and beauty products -- were worth that much alone. And to that we say "namaste."
