Funky Buddha Summer is FINALLY HERE…and we have to say, we EARNED it this year. Like, for really real.

Make the most of your Michigan Summer. Funky Buddha Triathlons all season long, SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) Yoga to give you your water sport fix, Friday night beach classes at Tunnel Park to give you your Lake Michigan fix, and, of course, our much loved-free outdoor community classes on Sundays. Plus stayed tuned for details about upcoming Cats on Mats (YES, ITS BACK!) as well as Yoga & Brunch!

There is SO much, that we hardly know how to communicate it to you! We’re stoked to finally share with you, albeit a tease, of what’s in store this summer!
