Copley Square will be glowing with neon yogis Friday as a yoga store new to Newbury Street hosts a mass hip hop yoga class and dance party in the park.
Lululemon Athletica, a clothing and gear shop for yoga and running, recently opened its second Boston location on Newbury Street. To celebrate, the store is hosting a yoga and dance party for 500 people from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday.
Goldie Kaufenberg, a yoga instructor and Lululemon community ambassador, will lead the first 500 students in a hip hop yoga class while a live DJ plays.
The store asks that anyone who would like to participate in the class bring their yoga mat, a photo I.D. to use a pair of headphones during the class, and bright clothing.
“Please wear your brightest neons and whites as we are glowin' up Copley Square!” reads the event’s Facebook page.
The night won’t end when the class does. After stretching through hip hop yoga, participants will have a chance to dance.
“Once we are savasana'd out headphones will come off and the DJ will turn up the volume for an epic dance party you won’t want to miss,” the event description reads.
