A Yoga Party is the perfect idea if your favourite way to socialise with friends is a more relaxed and laid back kind of vibe. A yoga party/wellness party combines fun and friends with a healthy aspect! Read on to find out how to host a ladies yoga wellness party.
Health and wellness is such a big part of women’s lives and we want to help you incorporate this into your social life too! Plus it’s a fun and unique party idea that is also great for the mind and the body!
The benefits of yoga are well documented: it can reduce stress, improve balance and flexibility and enhances your mood and overall well-being. And the great thing about yoga is that anyone can do it! So the next time your hosting a party, be it a bridal shower, birthday party or even just a girl’s night out, consider hosting a yoga party that won’t soon be forgotten!
The best thing about a yoga party is your guests will leave energised and refreshed!
Theme and Dress Code
Simply exchange your heels and tight dresses for yoga sandals and organic yoga pants! Tell the ladies to come in their activewear! A wellness/yoga retreat is about being comfortable. Wear tights, crop tops, socks, runners and make sure the ladies are comfortable as there will be some light workouts involved.
Create a fun yoga music playlist on Spotify with chilled, relaxing music! Add some meditation tracks so at the end of your yoga class your guests can lay in Savassana, close their eyes, breathe in and out and listen to the meditating music to soothe their soul.
