There is always a lot to do in Detroit, but this summer I think the must-do event is Moonlight Yoga down in West RiverFront Park. As the sun sets over the Detroit River, you can join in with 150 other local yogis for an hour long session of gentle yoga with Michelle Moten from Detroit’s Urban Solance.
The events are put together by Blue Cross and Detroit RiverFront Convervancy and only costs attendees $5. The $5 donation covers the cost of your glow stick bracelets, necklace and glow baton that you get to keep after your class. And with the size of RiverFront Park, parking is on site and free. You’re just a quick walk from your car to the yoga class as well as the river walk if you want to warm up before class. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own yoga mat and water, and with the heat we’ve been having lately – bring extra water!
When it comes to working out, yoga is definitely more my style. I’m more of a low-impact gal. When taking any yoga class, I sometimes worry that the class will be too hard or require too many poses that I am not up to yet. Thankfully, the Moonlight Yoga class is more of an introductory yoga, or gentle yoga class, encouraging participants to do their best and not over do it. With a cool breeze, and hearing the water on the river it helped add to an amazing yoga experience. Add in the beautiful twilight and dusk to dark night sky over the Ambassador bridge, and you’ve got the recipe for a great yoga experience.
Be sure to register for the last class of this summer on August 24th! The class will fill up quickly, so be sure to register online now!
Week99er received complimentary registration to attend the Moonlight Yoga class.
Moonlight Yoga is part of a multi-year partnership initiative between Blue Cross and the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy called Live the Riverfront, which encourages a healthy and active lifestyle through a series of free activities along the riverfront. Other components of Live the Riverfront include Walk the RiverWalk Wednesdays, weekly T’ai Chi and yoga classes, the annual Riverfront Run and the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Fit Park along the Dequindre Cut.
