The Back Bay stay is bringing back Boston yogi and mindfulness expert Rebecca Pacheco every Wednesday morning beginning June 28. Pacheco will lead the moderate-level, vinyasa-style yoga classes, good for both beginners and regulars, from 6:45AM to 7:45AM. Classes are $20 and include a sweet smoothie afterward. For a total of $40, you can buy a ticket to the class and admission to the pool for the day (which usually costs $45 alone). Or if you'd prefer a work-week getaway, both the class and pool access are free to hotel guests.


Pacheco, who has been teaching yoga for 17 years, said that the scenery is one of the most important parts of the class. She often instructs her yogis to look around as they’re exercising and take in the skyline. The surreal "on top of the world" feeling at this out-of-the-ordinary oasis is the perfect way to start your day! Don't believe us? Check it out for yourselves!

You can preregister for the class on Eventbrite, but it’s not required. The Colonnade will have mats available for those who don’t bring their own. We can't wait to try it ourselves! Find your morning flow with the help of Rebecca Pacheco and devour the details of a soulful summer.
