Parking Day 2011: Yoga and Free Bike Repair in the Park(ing) Spot

Friday, September 16, 2011 · 10:00 AM

What if parking spots were turned into parks? It’s time to re-imagine all that pavement this Friday, September 16th, for the Annual Parking Day! Parking Day is when people all over the world take normal parking spots and transform them into mini-parks for a day (or more?). Urban Habitat Chicago has celebrated Parking Day for 2 years, and this year we will continue the trend by celebrating fresh air!

First, help keep the air clean by biking! Seth Herr, UHC’s Communication Coordinator and professional bike mechanic, will be offering free bike repair and demos.

Then, Come breathe the clean air! Yoga sessions will be offered by Tula Yoga Studio, which will be opening at the end of September. Tula Yoga Studio is a locally owned, independent yoga studio offering classes in hot Vinyasa flow and non-heated classes in Beginners Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin Yoga, Plus Size/Pre-Natal and Family classes. Parking Day yoga session schedule listed below.

Also, you can VOLUNTEER at Parking Day! We will need volunteers before and after the event. To volunteer, or for general questions, contact us here
