Thrifty Bitch will be hosting a black magic yoga class at Art Terrarium lead by local goddess Amy Putney-Koenig. This class will be untraditional in many ways. We want to bring a darker element to the DSM yoga scene for those of you who identify with the dark side a lil bit more than others. We are bringing punk/metal yoga to this town, finally, and just in time for Halloween. Join us in celebrating the lifting of the veil with some badass rock n roll yoga, vintage clothing, plants, art, tarot readings by Kaley Gade + a dang good time 🤘


The event will take place from 6 PM-10 PM
Yoga will be from 6:30-7:45
