Phipps Plaza, luxury athletic chain hosting pop-up summer yoga classes

Atlantans have another place to stretch their stresses away thanks to a summer yoga series offered at Phipps Plaza. 

The mall, located in Buckhead, has collaborated with luxury athletic club Life Time Fitness to offer the hourlong yoga classes, according to Simon Property Group, which owns Phipps Plaza and five other malls in metro Atlanta.

Classes will be held 5:30 p.m. each Wednesday until Aug. 28 in the north wing of the mall. The complimentary classes are a preview of the types of yoga instruction offered at Life Time, which is expected to open a location at the mall in 2021. 

Construction is underway on the 90,000 square-foot project, Simon Property Group said. 

The luxury fitness club offers a “resort-style” healthy living and will include yoga and cycle classes, personal training and full-service spa. The club also includes a rooftop pool, beach club and bistro.
