Moonlight Yoga on Detroit Riverfront returns in July courtesy of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Detroit RiverFront Conservancy
July 11, 2018 @ 8:30 PM EDT$5
Individuals and families are invited to enjoy a one-of-a-kind, evening yoga experience on the Detroit Riverfront courtesy of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy. The events are part of the Conservancy’s summer wellness series, which offers free and low-cost fitness opportunities along the city’s vibrant riverfront.
In a unique twist on traditional yoga, attendees are provided glow necklaces, bracelets and 16-inch glow batons to incorporate into various poses led by local yoga instructor Michelle Moten of Detroit’s Urban Solace. Space is limited to 150 attendees per session, so advance registration at detroitriverfront.org is required. Participation costs $5 per person; however, scholarships are available for eligible individuals.
Yoga has been shown to relieve stress, strengthen muscles and improve flexibility while lowering heart rate and blood pressure. Those who choose to exercise outdoors also tend to work out longer and more frequently.
Whether in the car, at a desk or on the couch, the majority of adults spend more time sitting than sleeping, putting them at risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other health issues. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy have a shared goal of helping Michigan residents and employees stay active while also enjoying the vibrancy of Detroit’s riverfront spaces.
