8 Reasons to Check out the Storm the Wall Party on the Plaza

Wake up with Yoga on the Plaza

#1 Start off your day with a Yoga Dance Party!

Open to everyone, start your day with a yoga dance party! New this year is STORMBREAKER to celebrate this unique-to-UBC event. And to kick-off StormBreaker we’ll have body paint, a DJ, and a yoga instructor ready to go on the plaza (if the weather isn’t being favourable we’ll move to the AMS Nest) for 10AM. All you need is yourself and a yoga mat!

For more information check out our Facebook Event.
