A couple of weeks ago I had the awesome opportunity to participate in a rooftop twilight yoga session at the Chase Park Plaza in St. Louis, hosted by Sante Fitness and Wellness, with other local influencers and friends.
All photos in post taken by local photographer Megan Magray.
The view was spectacular, the yoga was relaxing, and the entire experience was perfect. I love love love being outside, and I definitely don’t make enough time in my life for yoga. It was fun to see a couple of familiar faces, Clare and Katie, who I hadn’t seen in awhile.
We reconnected and took obligatory blogger photos together.

Our hosts really went all out for us. They provided a lovely spread of fruits and vegetables, had refreshing cucumber water, made delicious smoothies that are offered at Sante (the “thinny mint” was the best!), and ensured each detail was attended to for making our visit unforgettable.
Sante Fitness and Wellness focuses on Fitness, Wellness, and Balance for their members. They have state-of-the-art fitness equipment, wifi, complimentary locker service and covered parking. Their facility is exquisite and spacious with 18,000 square feet.
It was the perfect night for yoga. It was a clear evening with temperatures celebrating the end of summer and the beginning of fall. We had time before yoga began to enjoy the views, stretch out, and chat with one another.
The energy was casual and relaxed, just as yoga should be, and our instructor from Sante, Ashley, did a great job feeding off the mood. She let us know this would be an average yoga class; it was fine for beginners, and more advanced yogis had the options to take the poses to the next level.
Being so busy with the beginning of school, yoga felt particularly good to be able to focus on nothing more than breathing, stretching, holding poses, letting go mentally, and taking in the beautiful scenery. It was just what I needed!
As class continued, the sun was setting which was magnificent from the rooftop. Apparently Sante Fitness and Wellness hosts rooftop classes every month, and not just yoga either! Spinning is another option that would be a lot of fun to take. For my participation in the event, I received a free week at Sante. I’m trying to figure out a good time to utilize it, so I can go a few times. There are additional group fitness classes that they offer that I’d love to try including yoga, pilates, kettlebell, cycle, aqua, and more. The facility is beautiful and they have a few different membership options, as well as student rates.
