So far, the Year of the Dog has brought sunshine, epic events and new restaurants that we just can't get enough of. We Aucklanders are lucky, that’s for sure. And the luck continues this week, there are so many awesome events on, we are spoilt for choice!
From uniquely fantastic exercise options, to sippin' on world-class whiskey, chances of getting bored this week are slim. Here are five excellent things to do in Auckland this week.
RISE AND ALIGN AT LULULEMON
This Monday, you have the option to rise and align at Lululemon, Castor Bay, for a complimentary outdoor sunrise meditation and yoga class. In the lead-up to International Woman’s Day, the event sets out to celebrate women far and wide. Instructor Selina Gilbert, from the Travelling Yogini, will take you on a journey of relaxation. New week, new me, has never been easier.
JUDGE, JURY & COOKIE MONSTER: AN INTERACTIVE COMEDY TRIAL
In keeping with its name, this show promises quirkiness, intrigue and an interactive experience. The theatrical performance follows the story of several suspects, the audience gets to act as the jury, and ultimately, the suspect pool will be narrowed down to determine who stole the cookie from the cookie jar! What’s guaranteed to be one hell of an entertaining night is bound to bring in crowds, so get your hands on tickets today!
LUNCHTIME DANCE FITNESS CLASS
A brand new class has arrived in Auckland! The New Zealand Dance Company is putting on a fitness class that’ll have you spending your lunch hour productively (a good time is also promised). The Dance, Core & More class will be taught by former Limbs Dance Company member and former Les Mills Programme Director, Susan Trainor. Add some movement to your day and get amongst this 40-minute fitness class! It's never too late to tick off those resolutions and become #fitspo.
This Wednesday you have the delightful option of attending a whiskey date night!
