Glendale Arts partnered with Prana Nata Yoga for Pop Up! in the Alex Theatre forecourt (216 N. Brand Blvd. in Glendale). The free yoga classes are offered every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. through Oct. 6. After the class, guests are invited to stay for complimentary wine provided by Left Coast Wine Bar and smoothies from Earthbar. All levels and ages are welcome.
After successful Pop Up! events at the Glendale Galleria and other public spaces and courtyards in downtown Glendale, Glendale Arts to grow Pop Up! from concerts into other community activities and decided the Alex Theatre would be a great location for outdoor yoga. It would showcase the historic venue in a whole new way.
“The Alex Theatre is known for its world class entertainment on the stage,” said Nina Crowe, director of Fund Development and Community Partnerships and the creator of the Pop Up! series. “This new series gives us an opportunity to open the forecourt to the community as well as create more meaningful partnerships with our supporters – namely Prana Nata Yoga, Left Coast Wine Bar, and Earthbar.”
Prana Nata Yoga, Glendale’s brand new yoga studio (1123 N. Pacific Ave.), will be providing the instructors for the four-week series.
“I found yoga to be a profound and ongoing experience of physical, mental, and philosophical wellness for myself, especially after 30 years of being a professional dancer and educator,” said owner Laura Fremont. “I am gratified to share my practice and guide others to a more meaningful sense of balance.”
As there is limited space in the forecourt, spots will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. A suggested donation of $10 a class is appreciated and will go towards Glendale Arts continuation of their Pop Up free community programming. Glendale Arts Members can reserve their spot by RSVP’ing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Yoga mats will not be provided.
