When silent discos rose in quirky/cool prominence a few years back, observers had to think A) um, wow and B) that's probably an idea that needed to happen and C) no, really, wow and D) what other headphone-sporting soirees will come along next?
The silent disco, where attendees don tune-filled headphones and shimmy in seeming silence (at least from the viewpoint of any headphones-less onlookers), is still a happening thing at hip hotels. But The Garland in North Hollywood may have upped the awesome ante in this space.
Why do we make this assertion with such confidence? You'll be wearing headphones as you perform your planks and chair poses.
And glowing, wireless, noise-isolating headphones at that. A DJ will be on site at the alfresco class, spinning tunes, while an instructor takes headphone-sporting attendees through several vinyasa movements.
The class will run an hour -- it kicks off promptly at 7:30 p.m. on May 12 -- but there shall be several complementary cool things orbiting the main event, including a station focusing on tasty vegetable crudité, a taco cart, and agua frescas to help cool you down after some of the more vigorous poses.
Speciality cocktails will help in this cooling down regard, too.
A ticket to class? It's a pinch over twenty seven bucks. And if you can't make it, but want to know how this yoga-meets-DJing-meets-silent-disco experience is, stay tuned: The Garland will do it again in September.
