Glow with the Flow
“Yoga” and “nightlife” might sound mutually exclusive, but they don’t have to be. At Floo-id Yoga’s Glow with the Flow sessions on the first Saturday of every month, you can practice your poses in a room glowing with black lights while listening to upbeat music and wearing glow-in-the-dark bracelets, paint, and necklaces.
The classes are rooted in vinyasa, which involves flowing movement between poses and controlled breathing techniques. Each class is an hour long and costs $20 for drop-ins. The studio offers a special introductory rate of two weeks for $30 and monthly unlimited access for $119. The next class is from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 3, at 7077 East Mayo Boulevard, #130. Call 480-515-9642 or visit Floo-id Yoga website. Laura Latzko
