By JAMIE VERWYS
Most of us are still trying to get back into the grind of school and welcome many distractions to test our wills. In between glances at syllabi and sips of coffee, take a page from the summer and enjoy one of these events.
Take out your yoga mat and cover it in glow sticks for a Yoga Rave hosted by Session Yoga and ABUD Entertainment, in collaboration with Lululemon Athletica and Aveda Institute.
Participants will be led in a glow and flow yoga session by Chelsea Lucas, Kristin Brakke Horton and Ricky Abud of Session Yoga. Disc jockey Rosette Abud will spin sun-salutation worthy beats all night.
The meditative rave will take place at Session Yoga,123 S. Eastbourne Ave. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the rave begins at 7:30 p.m.
