What To Do This Weekend – Yoga At The Glen, Run Like a Diva, and Spread Yoga Across America

Hey All, today I decided to do a post on ideas/events for you to attend this weekend in or near Des Moines, Iowa. Why? Because it is Wednesday, you can officially begin talking about and planning your weekend. Also, I’ve just come across a few cool events for cool causes that I would love to attend but will be unable to do to attending the Healthy Living Summit in Minneapolis this weekend. I am so excited! If I was in town this weekend here is what I’d be checking out.

I attended Yoga At the Glen earlier this summer, and I had a blast! Totally bummed I can’t make this. Think all the awesomeness of Yoga At the Glen- nature, live music, community and yoga of course PLUS a good cause!
