Every month outside of the Pérez Art Museum in Miami the northeast corner of the park, you can spot groups of yoga enthusiasts stretching out on the grass as part of a donation-based Rise & SoulShine Yoga event led by local celebrity instructors, Jessie Patter and Julianne Aerhee. Hosted by Priti Yoga and Team Vinchay, Rise & SoulShine is usually held every second Saturday of the month.

Representatives from Jamie’s Rescue will be on site along with some of their furry, adorable four-legged friends that are hoping to steal your heart and find a new, loving home.

Vendors include Sansavita CBD Oils, Bloodless Vegan, MLPieces, Live Ultimate, CooLHeadS, Harmless Harvest, Raw Juse, Wedge Effect, Invite & Meet, The Yielding Seed, and LuLuLemon.
