In a summer season filled with music, comedy and food festivals, Physical Park has created a festival dedicated to fitness and health. It’s called Park Rising and the aim is to get people to rise up and become their best selves.
The yoga and health festival, running July 29, 30 and 31, is a full weekend of indoor and outdoor classes, workshops, events, food and music set at some of Hudson’s most beautiful locations. It’s the chance to take a waterfront yoga class at Jack Layton Park or Auberge Willow Inn, or a Bodyweight Obstacle Training course at Sandy Beach. It’s all about transformation. Oh, and there’s a Transformation class that’s part of the lineup.
Park Rising will debut at 7 pm, on July 29, as the sun sets on Jack Layton Park with Pravaha Sunset Yoga with Erica Arsenault. A Sunset Bodyweight Training course with Ivan von Huene will run almost simultaneously (7:30 pm) at Sandy Beach. Not sure what classes you want to take? Not a problem. There are 27 classes scheduled to run during Park Rising.
Physical Park Director Alexander von Huene said the festival is a chance for people to take the classes they love in different, beautiful outdoor settings, or shake up their fitness routine by trying several new classes (think the Handbalancing Workshop, or Zumba in the street!).
And while you’re working your body all weekend, it definitely won’t go hungry. Especially with a Special Lunch at Cozy cafe.
Festival pass holders will be treated to everything from an organic green smoothie, to coffee meditation at Kaito Coffee Roasters, Hudson’s newest destination coffee roasters, to the chance to chill at the Park Rising Chillout Outdoor Lounge at Mikko.
In short, Park Rising is a weekend devoted to helping you get your zen on, your muscles pumped, your chakras balanced and your holistic ducks in a row. Don’t miss the chance to rise up during Park Rising.
