Date night with your friends is always a great idea! Whether you're looking for relaxation, adventure, or an intentional way to connect, there is plenty of things to choose from in town. So the next time you think about wanting to make plans, here are a few new ideas for a memorable evening out together in Lincoln, CA!
Private or Group Sound Healing Session
If you and your pal are looking for a grounding, safe and healthy way to escape the stress of everyday life, a private dual sound healing session may be just the thing. Sound healing is an ancient practice that involves using various instruments like singing bowls, gongs, and chimes to create a calming and meditative atmosphere. Interestingly enough, the vibrations of these instruments can help release tension and stress, reduce anxiety, and promote a sense of relaxation and well-being on a cellular level.
You'll typically lie down or sit comfortably while the instructor plays the instruments during a session. Then, you may be asked to focus on your breath, visualize a calming scene, or let go and allow the sounds to wash over you. This practice is an incredible way to unwind and connect with your inner self while spending quality tie with your bestie- a win-win!
Yoga Class & Tea Time
For a more active and still mindful date night, consider attending a yoga class with your BFF. Yoga is an excellent way to exercise while reducing stress and connecting with your body and mind. Whether you're a seasoned yogi or a beginner, there are plenty of classes to choose from. You can go for a gentle, restorative class to help you unwind or a more vigorous, flow-based style to work up a sweat. Whatever your preference, attending a class with your pal is a great affordable way to support each other, try something new, and have some fun.
After class catch up with your pal over a cup of tea and snack at Rebel Hen Cafe, a neighborhood favorite downstairs from our yoga studio. Tea is a great way to slow down and relax, allowing you to savor the moment and connect with your bestie fully. You can share stories, discuss everything under the sun, and enjoy much-needed friend time together.
Full Moon Gathering
What better way to add some variety and increase inspiration than a full moon gathering? For a unique and spiritual date-night experience, consider this activity! These events involve various activities like meditation, light body movement, intention setting, cacao drinking, community connection, and more. They're a great way to connect with your inner voice and the moon's flowing energy while connecting with like-minded individuals. What a way to spend an evening with friends!!
Going Out in Nature
Lincoln is home to some beautiful natural areas, making it the perfect destination for a fun outing night or day in nature. Consider hiking in the Auburn State Recreation Area or taking a leisurely stroll through McBean Park. You can also pack a picnic and enjoy the sunshine near a local water reserve; as a great way to get some fresh air, enjoy the beauty of nature, and make some lasting memories with your friends.
Love to dance but looking for a safe and sacred container? Ecstatic dance is a form of self-expression that allows you to move freely in any direction. People who practice don’t follow any steps or rules- rather they are led with their hearts and spirit to flow wherever the rhythm takes them.
An ecstatic dance event is typically facilitated by a DJ, and is alcohol-free; truly a great thing to do with a friend or two. Find your inner wild and consider this unique outing the next time you plan an evening out with your friends!
Remember, an essential part of maintaining any relationship is making sure you take the time to intentionally nurture the connection. Whether you're looking to relax and unwind or seeking a new experience, we invite you to explore the studio's current events and offerings to plan your next night out!
