About the Event
About The Fitness for Ogden Fundraising Series
Join Mikhaila and the extended Ogden International School of Chicago family for a monthly yoga practice and happy hour, that is good for you, strengthens and celebrates our community and raises money for our school! Like many CPS schools, Ogden relies on fundriasing efforts to generate revenue for essential supplies and needs. As a parent of two Ogden/Jenner students and a Friends of Ogden board member, this cause is very close to Mikhaila's heart. 100% of the proceeds from this event, and all events in the Fitness for Ogden series (recurring monthly on the 3rd Thursday of each month) will go directly to Friends of Ogden and benefit the Ogden International School of Chicago. Mikhaila, a celebrated and experienced fitness instructor, recently launched Good Vibe Tribe, as a place to safely lead group fitness classes oline during the Covid-19 outbreak, and was lauded by Chicago Magazine as the "Best Reason to Work Out in Your Kitchen." Whether you are personally deeply commited to making a positive financial impact on the school, or you are excited to pursue your yoga practice, safely and conveniently from the comfort of your own home, or you just want some quality time with your friends and a glass of wine, we are excited to welcome you to the Fitness for Ogden event series and invite you to become part of our community!
What to Expect - How to Prepare
This will be an all-levels welcome 45 minute VinyasaFLOW style virtual yoga class followed by a festive, interactive wine social! We will not need any equipment, just your body and a yoga mat if you have one and any of your preferred yoga props if you have them. Be sure to wear comfortable movement clothes and feel free to practice in bare feet! You may like to have a towel and water available during class and wine ready to pour for our social after class! The event will start at 6pm so please try to jump online by 5:45-6pm. We will have time after class to connect, relax and recharge with our friends, family and extended community over wine, or your preferred refreshing beverage! This will be a great opportunity for connection and reflection as well sharing questions, comments, feedback and requests for the next session!
This virtual yoga experience is designed for ADULTS - in fact the event is geared towards giving exhausted and overwhelmed parents/guardians/teachers an opportunity to relax and recharge. If you are eager to practice with your child it is possible they may be able to follow directions and keep up with the flow, and kids can certainly enjoy and benefit from yoga just as well as grown ups - just please keep in mind this is NOT designed to be a children's yoga class.
We will offer two types of tickets: General Admission and Sponsor. General Admission will give you access to the event, while the Sponsor ticket allows you to add a more generous contribution to the school during this hard time. 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales go directly to Friends of Ogden to support the school.
Tell Your Friends!
Please help us spread the word about the event! Share on social media, or by word of mouth! We will be exponentially more successful if more people know about this event, and it will be more fun with the energy of lots of people working out together!! You do NOT have to live in Chicago to attend this virtual event or support our school! Can you think of 2 people who might like this event and send them the link to register? That would be awesome!
This is an inclusive fundraising event - all are welcome. If the cost of class is prohibitive but you are interested in joining for fitness and fun, please simply message Good Vibe Tribe and we will provide a scholarship code which can be used to secure a free ticket to the event.
