Drop and Give Me Zen

Rebecca Terrell | September 5, 2014 | Articles

1. Reaching Nirvana
Need a midmorning pick me up? Ditch the break-room coffee and, instead, get a natural high from perfecting your downward dog at Lunch Yoga, an hourlong class that is guaranteed to keep you rejuvenated for the rest of the day. Best part? It’s $5. What a steal! Nirvana Yoga Atlanta, Grant Park

2. It’s a Party!
On Sept. 18, round up your fellow yogis and head up to the seventh floor of Loews Atlanta Hotel for Marie Claire mag and Exhale Spa’s fourth annual namasDAY. Revive and restore your mind with a complimentary class, sips and snacks, and even a mini spa therapy. Can you say om? Loews Atlanta Hotel, Midtown, @exhalespa

3. Happy Hour
It’s post-work and you’re stuck in another A-town traffic jam. Skip the bar down the street and opt for an $8 stress-melting hour of meditation. It’s the perfect after-work “cocktail”—practicing your pigeon pose—all while avoiding 5 o’clock traffic. Sacred Thread Yoga, Old Fourth Ward, @sacredthreadom

4. Stress Be Gone
You made it through hump-day, so now what? Give your mind a little TLC while relaxing from a busy week with $5 stress-release classes on Thursdays and Sundays. There is guaranteed to be some savasana in there. (Nap, anyone?) You Yoga, Me Yoga & More, Sandy Springs, @youyogameyoga

5. Bring on the Storm
What beats yoga poolside at one of ATL’s fave spots? Having one of JEZEBEL’s 20 Most Eligible Atlantans teach the class! Join Carly Grace Hinchman from Buckhead’s new Thunderbolt Power Yoga on Sept. 24 for a special night of complimentary yoga and giveaways. W Atlanta – Buckhead, Buckhead, @yogastorm

6. Studio Takeover
Pick up a new pair of yoga pants (or five) after a complimentary class led by some of the ATL’s best yoga instructors. Each Sunday a different studio invades the Howell Mill Road Lululemon to lead an hourlong class full of poses for all levels. See you on the mat! Lululemon, Westside, @lululemon

7. Sleep In
If you dream of being one of those bendy yoga champs, start your weekend in bliss with a free class at Atlanta Activewear. Not a morning person? Hit the snooze button and take the $12 evening class held by Forme Fitness Center, which mixes barre, yoga, Pilates and body-weight movements. Feel the burn! Atlanta Activewear, Virginia-Highland, @atlactivewear

8. Love Every Moment
Fuel your fire with internationally known Meghan Currie’s workshop on Sept. 20-21. Spend the weekend working on your crow pose while interacting with experienced gurus and newbies alike. Can’t make the workshop? Take a $5 Karma class or drop in for a yogahour*give class—50 percent of all proceeds support the Bhatti Mines School in New Delhi, India. Tough Love Yoga, Candler Park, @toughloveyoga

9. Find Your Edge
You’ve got a busy schedule—we get it. Take advantage of $5 yoga classes held three times a week in the afternoon at Kashi Atlanta. Taught by students and graduate students on Kashi’s Training program, the class focuses on classic technique and is open to all levels. Perfect for a spontaneous afternoon with the girls! Kashi Atlanta, Edgewood, @kashiatlanta

10. Take it to the Streets
