A few of our Minneapolis studios put together a free outdoor yoga event at Brit’s Pub, a popular downtown Minneapolis spot complete with an outdoor lawn on its roof. The pub holds “Bend It At Brit’s” every year – an event where local yoga studios can organize and conduct classes on its rooftop.
Jodi Sussner, Director of YogaFit Programming, taught the hour-long class that featured balancing, strengthening, and restorative postures.
Approximately 220 people of all ages and yoga experience levels showed up, including some current YogaFit members and instructors. Attendees received sweet swag before class started: free week passes and YogaFit towels. Pub patrons were asking if there were extra mats available so they could join the fun!
“We loved seeing over 200 people doing yoga in the evening hours on a lit-up lawn in downtown Minneapolis on a roof of a pub!” Minneapolis franchisee Ashok Dhariwal said. The event was such a success that the Minneapolis studios hope to host another free outdoor class again next summer.
