lululemon Black History Month: Take Space Wellness Festival
February 10 - February 11
Join lululemon as they celebrate Black History, present, and future with two days of wellness, connection, activations, and much more.
The Take Space Wellness Festival, curated by lululemon ambassadors Alicia Ferguson, co-founder of BK Yoga Club and OnDekalb, and Eric Mosley, founder of Black Mat Yoga, is an intersectional two-day festival celebrating the beauty of Black culture through past, present, and future.
“Black Resistance” is the official theme of Black History Month this year and the festival highlights our Ambassadors’ six pillars of resistance: joy, movement, culture, food, rest, and pleasure. Movement sessions and panel discussions will be led by Black New York City lululemon ambassadors and community builders.
The Wellness Fest is a multi-sensory experience featuring The Wellness Haus, where you can get complimentary massages, manicures, and facials by appointment. Enjoy a pop-up flower shop by Brooklyn Blooms and shop a wellness marketplace curated by Black-Owned Market. Plus, catch up with friends over a cup of tea by Brooklyn Tea and browse a pop-up bookstore by Cafe Con Libros. Delicious food will be provided daily by Black Skillet Catering.
General Admission tickets are to spend time at the Wellness Fest and experience all the weekend has to offer. *Class spots are donation based, pay as you wish. Sign up for one or many!
