The headline says it all. There’s reiki and spirits! Yoga and spritzers! And an event called Lilith Ferris which, yes, is a play on the ’90s music festival Lilith Fair. Bet you never thought Sarah McLachlan and the Dallas fitness scene would come together, but here we are.
Here’s a brief itinerary for fun ways to feel fit this September.
To celebrate Session Pilates’ third anniversary (and opening three studios), owner Brittany Grignon is throwing a mini festival that’s all about empowering women. The all-female lineup (à la Lilith Fair) includes Caroline Kraddick, Not Ur Girlfrenz, and Forever Starts Today, with 100 percent of the event’s proceeds going to The Family Place and Deeds Not Words. Naturally, the day kicks off with a Pilates class.
September 21 from noon to 10pm at Ferris Wheelers
Super Yoga Palace is bringing their goods vibes to Bar & Garden’s plant-filled space on Ross for a slow flow and deep stretch (with some light reiki sprinkled throughout). Treat yourself to a hard-earned complimentary clean wine and spirits tasting after class.
September 21 at 10am at Bar & Garden
Does anything sound more pleasant than a Saturday morning of yoga on the Four Seasons’ Terrace Lawn followed by organic Italian wine spritzers? Oh, and a portion of your ticket fee will be donated to Yoga 4 Cancer.
September 21 from 10 to 11:30am at Four Reasons Resort at Las Colinas
To celebrate the national holiday, TruFusion is teaming up with the West End Historic District to hose a complimentary Pilates and yoga class on the seventh floor of newly built The Luminary (which boasts some killer views).
September 25 at 6:30pm in The Luminary
In honor of National Women’s Health and Fitness Day, the VersaClimber studio is offering complimentary themed classes (including “Women That Rock” and “Hip Hop Divas”) all day long.
Wednesday, September 25, at the West Village studio
Of all the baby animal yoga classes, this one seems the riskiest. But high risk, high reward, you know?
September 26 at 6pm in the Adolphus Hotel’s Grand Ballroom
Dallas’ “first experiential fitness festival” includes live music, food and drink vendors, as well as a local artist showcase, but the workouts (led by some of the city’s best studios) are the main attraction.
September 27 and 28 at Omni Dallas Hotel
On Sunday, September 29, book a spot in the red room and feel good knowing that your $32 is going to Equality Texas, which advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights.
September 29 at 2pm at the West Village studio.
