Just for fun, but last weekend I attended a free moms (and kids) one hour dance class hosted by Athleta. Instructor is from the Centre For Dance. It’s 10AM every Sunday in October in the Northpark Courtyard, that grassy area outside near La Duni. it was fun!

That's awesome! I know that Athleta, Lulu Lemon and Fabletics do sometimes offer free classes in the area. That's good to know.
