So if you’ve been up on the news or tried to go to Yosemite National Park for its 123rd birthday this week, you’d know the government is currently in
shitdown shutdown mode. However, if you happen to be one of the 800,000 government employees out of the office (or forest) as an effect, don’t be distraught, there are discount yoga classes to be had!
Like at Willow Street Yoga Center in Maryland who is offering special $10 drop-in classes for people with a government ID.
The website explains:
“We are acutely aware that the shutdown of the Federal Government is affecting our students and community. We know that In times like this yoga is more essential than ever.”
Maybe true and it’s a nice gesture, but just a tad opportunistic too, no? Though, they’re not alone. The gimmicks have extended to free food, tickets to the theater and free oil changes.
Gimmicky or not, we have to admit, if we worked for the government we’d totally be taking yoga classes, getting our tires rotated and eating free cupcakes before the end of the day.
