Namas Day Celebrates Yoga and Wellness




Philadelphia’s Wellness CommUNITY will come together on April 21, for the ninth annual Namas Day at the WHYY building on Independence Mall. This all-day event offers a full schedule of yoga programming, a wellness marketplace and food trucks.

Yoga teachers have the opportunity to earn Yoga Alliance continuing education credits and learn new skills for their own teaching. Yoga students can register for a full day of yoga workshops with some of the best teachers in the area or enjoy a class or two ranging from acro yoga to restorative yoga. Internationally renowned yoga teacher Faith Hunter will present For the Grown Up and Sexy and Spiritually Fly.

Namas Day is made possible by My Area Yoga, a website publication for local yoga since 2012. Founder Mary Fetterman, says their goal is to offer the greater Philadelphia community an opportunity to enjoy a day of wellness.
