Recap: AMped and Mamma Chia’s Summer SOULstice at Northerly Island

Yoga, Social, and Fireworks for a Feel-Good Night 

AMped teamed up with Mamma Chia on Wednesday, June 29 to present Summer SOULstice, a yoga and social event complete with fireworks to end the gorgeous evening at Northerly Island. AMped is an organization known for throwing kickass health and wellness events (typically in the AM), but they clearly know how to rock the PM as well. The event had over 200 attendees.

Upon arrival at 6:30pm, guests were given a Mamma Chia reusable gift bag filled with generous samples. Inside the full-size bag of goodies was organic vitality loose granola, granola bars, coupons, an AMped yoga towel, and more. AMped organizers greeted guests and led them to the braid bar arranged by Stylisted for hair to be professionally tied up before the yoga practice.

At 7:30pm, the yoga session took place in the grass at Northerly Island Park with the city skyline and lake as the perfect backdrop. Dave and Piper of Zen Yoga Garage led everyone to get their energy flowing. Other instructors from the studio were also spread throughout the grass to help guests make adjustments for safety and proper alignment.

At 8:30pm after the yoga practice, the social portion of the event began. People took time to snap some photos of the breathtaking sunset and skyline. A live DJ kept everyone groovin’ and there was even a photo machine set up to easily capture moving images and share on social media. After relaxing with some Tito’s cocktails and revitalizing with a Mamma Chia beverage, everyone was ready to enjoy the fireworks.
