Yoga's calming meditative stances and the hustle and bustle of the city will join today, and for the rest of the summer, thanks to Lululemon's Urban Yoga series. Urban Yoga will happen every Wednesday for the rest of the sunny season, the perfect way to fit in some exercise into your busy city-schedule.
Hosted by Bram Levinson and other instructors, Montreal's Urban Yoga will begin at noon and run until 1pm in Square Victoria (map). An annual event, all you'll need to bring is your water bottle, a yoga mat (some may be available, but limited supply), and a set of clothes to get stretchy.
Spend your lunch break getting a little yoga in, and head to Square Victoria today for Lululemon's free Urban Yoga session. Even if you miss it, at least make sure to attend next week! Check out the calendar of events so you stay in the loop.

While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
