Let’s face the facts: no one does brunch quite like New Yorkers on Mother’s Day. But why stop at bellinis and frittatas? This year – more than ever – there are a number of activities the city has to offer for post-brunch family time. From high teas and wine festivals to mommy-and-me yoga classes, events in all boroughs will honor Mother’s Day this weekend. Check out our roundup below.
Take some time to relax this Mother’s Day. Yogi Bean is hosting Mother’s Day-themed classes of both Family Yoga and Me & My Bean. Family classes emphasize collaboration with group games and poses, while Me & My Bean classes teach basic yoga poses with songs and games.
