yoga mat

Namaste to the Fiancée

If you’re looking for a low-key bachelorette party theme, why not schedule a group yoga class to bend, stretch, and take a break from the craziness of wedding planning? This is a particularly great idea if your bride-to-be isn’t into the partying scene, but wants a bachelorette event that focuses more on self-care and fitness. Whether you’ve got a group of yoga pros or newbies, a group class is a great bonding opportunity for the ‘maids.
