We all know working out doesn’t come cheap these days.  That is, unless you want to head over to Gregory Gym (except many of us graduate in May therefore no more Gregory) or hit the trails outside somewhere.  Otherwise, you have to be a member of a gym or studio and usually pay a fairly high fee each month.  Not anymore… !

For the remainder of April Lululemon Athletica is hosting “Weird Wednesdays at Whole Foods” at 6th and Lamar!  Come join others starting at 6:30 p.m. on the top of Whole Foods for an hour of free fitness classes!  Seeing as we are in the middle of April, there are only three classes left (April 15, 22 and 29) but they each offer a different workout!

Free Yoga..but don’t knock over the statue

Looking for something unusual to do on a Thursday night? Head over to the Blanton Museum where admission is free every Thursday and where on third Thursday they have an array of programs including yoga, book clubs, in-house artists discussions and much more. Although the third Thursday of the month is a while off, if you go in tomorrow you will be able to experience The Birth of Cool, an exhibit centered around mid-century modernism in Los Angeles. As an added bonus tomorrow, April 2, professors from UT’s School of Architecture will be delivering the Expert Perspective about the exhibit.

On these nights the museum extends its hours for the public. I know what you are thinking….yoga in an art museum? Well, I have tried it and it is actually very relaxing at the Blanton—-think of yourself as apart of the artwork. That is unless you fall! So give it a try, what do you have to lose? It is FREE! One tip though: If you bring your yoga mat, carry it vertically or one of the museum workers will kindly but sternly remind you. It would be a shame to knock over an ancient Greek statue when you came for a night of relaxation.
