Despite the materialistic world of Oak Street in the Gold Coast of Chicago, there comes a time for relaxation and serenity, like this Wanderlust Festival proudly sponsored yoga at Athleta Oak Street.
Compared to the over-crowded, elbow-to-elbow opening of the store back in January, this event gathered a small crowd, maybe less than twenty people. It took place on Cinco De Mayp, and perhaps that explains the small crowd for the evening.
We started the class with stretches and then went into the vinyasa flow of chata rungas and down dogs, onto mountain poses. Near the end, some partner stretches.
When I moved my lavender yoga mat between poses, I found a sheet of paper with “Private Shopping Party” and I actually won this gift certificate that I’m going to host as a promotional event. Super lovely thanks so much to Atheta on Oak Street for the gift and Luna Bars, and to Wanderlust for the moment of rest.
