Hey Downtown! It’s Rebecca!

One thing that I love about working for the Downtown Boulder Partnership is how much time I get to spend exploring the downtown district. From incredible events I have gotten to be a part of to yummy lunch spots and cute new shops, there is always something new to check out. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to share my “insider scoop” to help you get the most out of the district! 

So, I’m back this week to report my new findings! Downtown Boulder offers a wide variety of classes and courses for you to try out. From baking to crafts and yoga, join me and try out something new this month!

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yogi, Yoga Pearl has a class for you.
