January Event Calendar
Desert Bloom Yoga Festival
Start your year off recharged with a cleared mind after attending this 3-day yoga retreat. Taking place in Paradise Valley, you will be surrounded by desert flora, fauna, and mountains. There will be intention setting, morning meditations, a nutrition class, an option to swim in a luxury pool, and choices between various yoga classes (ariel, power, flow yoga, and yen). Many classes and scheduled events are in the venue’s Mountain View Room, with floor-to-ceiling windows for a beautiful view. Weekend stay packages start at $299.
Humana Rock 'n' Roll Arizona
You won’t participate in many races more fun and exhilarating than the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon or 1/2 marathon. It’s enjoyable for all fitness levels; the Rock ‘n’ Roll races are held across the country and are known for their live music and excitement along the courses. The one held in Arizona is a rather flat course that goes through Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe. If you’re not up for a marathon or half marathon, there’s also a 5K, a 10K, and a kids race. Depending on the race, registration fees range from $50-$130. Even if you opt to cheer on the sidelines, it’s truly an event that’s fun for all! Register to run here; online registration closes Sunday, January 12.
