It’s the unspoken rule at every bowling alley — don’t walk on the lanes, unless you want to slip on the grease. Feed your rebellious spirit and not only walk on the lanes, but stretch on them. Melissa Perret, owner of Ashtanga Muse, started Yoga on the Lanes in 2018 and the event has been a hit since.
“Some friends and I used to go to Plaza Bowling once a month on Fridays, just for bowling and beers,” says Perret. “We started talking with the owner, Trevor (Stride), because we were always the only ones there. And he said it’d be great to have yoga there when he found out I was a yoga teacher, so we gave it a shot.”
The hour-long class is beginner friendly and followed by one round of bowling. This is the first Yoga on the Lanes event Perret has hosted since before the pandemic.
“It usually attracts like-minded people who like to go out and try new things, and usually are pretty social,” says Perret. “Plaza Bowling is incredible. The owners are lovely. And, it’s a good way to try yoga, especially if you’re not comfortable going into a studio setting, because it’s pretty relaxed.”
Yoga on the Lanes takes place April 16 at Plaza Bowling, located at 10418 118 Ave. NW. Tickets are $25 and the class starts at 10:30 a.m.
