I spent a few minutes searching for interesting Thanksgiving Day fitness classes this morning and realized there should be a post about the options.
A few things I noticed:
– The first few which popped up in my search were yoga studio classes/workshops with a focus on being thankful.
– Some of the other studios will be focusing on getting a great work-out before eating a huge meal.
– Many of the studios have picked a non-profit to support and will be hosting a donation-based class/workshop instead of a normal class.
Aditi Yoga & Bodywork (Fremont)
“Join Megan for her 2nd annual special Thanksgiving Day Practice at Aditi. This heart opening slow flow practice will open us up to the energy of the day, welcoming in peace and connecting us with gratitude and thanksgiving. The asana practice will be followed by a long delicious savasana accompanied by a sound bath with crystal singing bowls. Class is all levels.”
Cost: Regular class pricing. I found it on ClassPass.
