Yoga partners with health care provider, postpones outdoor mega-class

Some 2,000 yoga enthusiasts piled into Mizner Park Amphitheater for Yoga Journey’s sixth Something Big free class New Year’s Day 2020. Owner Leslie Glickman’s free weekly class for the city in Sanborn Square can draw 300 people. That’s how much yoga has grown since she opened her studio in Boca’s Wyndham Hotel at the end of 2012. But Covid has put a temporary halt to both.

This is the first time Glickman announced postponing Something Big 2021. “We have chosen to cancel Something Big to keep everyone safe. That’s a choice for the health and wellness of our community, and we’re planning to do something bigger in 2022,” she said. “We hope to be back in the park soon. too. I love opportunities to make yoga accessible to everyone.”

In lieu of both offerings, Glickman has taken the next step to put yoga out there.  “I am excited to announce a weekly community class with Baptist Health South Florida. On Mondays at 10 a.m., join me for an all levels Vinyasa class. https://baptisthealth.zoom.us/j/97604427496? pwd=SVNLVVZuQ0trcDhYNysvK3VTVHlzQT09#success

Glickman wants to make it clear her yoga class is just one of the many free offerings from the health care provider, from Zumba Gold to barre. Baptist Health was Something Big’s biggest sponsor this year to get their own brand out after bringing Boca Raton Regional Hospital and other facilities into the network. So her studio already had that connection, she said. “Baptist Health had banners and their own booth with giveaways and did health assessments. We were in conversation about doing more together in the community. And then Covid happened.”

Glickman still has a few classes in Yoga Journey’s studio, and she set up a small Zoom space in her house. “My last class was March 7. We were up and running on digital in a week and offer 30 classes a week.” Those classes are $10.
