Trivia Night & Beer Yoga

This month we decided to host a trivia night at the greenhouse, as well as beer yoga. We had about 50 people come out for a “Night out at the Greenhouse” eager to spend their Saturday night surrounded by vegetable, fruit, flower plants, and friends. As a community greenhouse, we offer a space and programming for gardening, but we also are also fortunate to be able to offer a venue for community events, including our own fundraisers like trivia and yoga.

Kim Herle, one of our regular yoga instructors, decided to offer a beer yoga event, where each participant was given two drinks throughout the hour-long yoga session. Somehow the class ended in a sing-along, with one participant playing the ukulele while everyone else sang their hearts out. For those who weren’t ready for their night at the greenhouse to end, we had a trivia night downstairs, where teams of 4-5 tested their general and local knowledge. We had the help of some local groups to include a round on local trivia, with questions from Children’s First Society, Inuvialuit Communication Society, Environment and Natural Resources, Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, Aurora Research Institute, and more. As the sun finally began to set around midnight, the greenhouse cleared out with people encouraging us to host more “nights out at the greenhouse”.

   

YOGA! And beer?? August 12th from 7-8pm at the Greenhouse!

As Watercolour 101 suggested to us, folks in Inuvik are looking for something new to do in the evenings. When our yoga instructor, Kim, suggested a beer yoga event… we thought the heat upstairs was perhaps getting to her! However, it turns out that other folks in the south are taking this up, and it is a LOT of fun!

This started in Germany, and is basically an event where you practice yoga and incorporate beer drinking. It is fun, funny and totally safe – although we will ask you to sign a waiver to take part!

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. You will be given 2 free beer (or cider), which will be given out at the 0 minute and 30 minute mark of the class. After the event, you will be invited to stay for our licensed trivia night (tickets are $5… but free to yoga participants).

Contact info@inuvikgreenhouse.com for more information, or to purchase a ticket! Maximum 30 participants for this event (and we have some yoga mats if you need them!)

Sorry… must be 19 or older to take part!
