What: Individuals and families are invited to enjoy free yoga classes along the Detroit Riverfront courtesy of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy. The event is an extension of the fourth-annual Live the Riverfront program, offering free and low-cost fitness opportunities throughout summer.
In a unique twist on traditional yoga, Moonlight Yoga participants wear glow jewelry and incorporate 16-inch glow batons into various poses. Space is limited to 150 attendees per session, so advance registration at detroitriverfront.org is required. The sessions are free, but participants are asked to consider making a five-dollar donation to the Conservancy to cover the accessories cost.
