Philly’s Self-Love Saturday

After a long winter in Philadelphia, spring finally seemed to arrive with warm, sunny weather on Saturday, April 23! Sun salutations were in order as Philadelphia Elites enjoyed an hour-long power yoga hosted by OpenBox Athletics. New to the neighborhood, OpenBox is spick and span gorgeous and boasts a 6000 square foot facility. Elites arrived and scoped out the space, while cashing in on a Yelp Check-In Offer for a swag bag filled with goodies.

Yoga started shortly after everyone got settled in with some calming breathing techniques. While some Elites are pros in their own right, others found their own rhythm as OpenBox instructor Emily urged everyone to do. Emily was calming and clear in her instructions while circling the room, making sure everyone was comfortable. The practice was all about relaxing and enjoying the session, regardless of level of expertise. The hour went by quickly, ending with everyone’s favorite pose: savasana.

As yoga ended, our restaurant sponsors were just getting started! Three Philadelphia favorites were ready to nourish Elite yogis! Fuel had a scrumptious healthy grain stir-fry, plus fresh carrot-ginger juice. Honeygrow showcased their amazing honey bar, while Pure Fare satisfied everyone’s sweet tooth with delicious and healthy homemade cookies including avocado chocolate-chip and tahini-banana!

As guests mingled while chowing down on delicious snacks, the reusable Yelp swag bags were revealed to include Yelp sunnies and sweat bands, coupons and other freebies from the sponsors. If you missed this spectacular day of stretching, a little sweating, and a lot of snacking, be sure to check out reviews and photos on the designated listing here!
