Skydeck Chicago Upcoming Events

Saturday May 16th, 1pm-2pm
Yoga in the Sky(deck) with Brooklyn Boulders

Live Video by Skydeck Chicago

Live from the Willis Tower Skydeck in Chicago, this 60 minute yoga class with Elsa will be a Vinyasa Flow (breath linked to movement) intended for all levels.

Physically, we’ll stretch, strengthen, and build a sense of calm in our bodies. We’ll also aim to move through feelings of stuckness and isolation to create space for a fresh perspective, some fun, and greater connection as we look out to the world around us.

Class will conclude with a silent retreat to let you soak up the good vibes, remembering that you are part of something greater and grander than the room in which you find yourself.
