There’s no need to hibernate this winter. Clarksville has a number of interesting events to jump-start your 2020 adventures.
What’s not to love about yoga and cupcakes? Namaste for the Kupcakes will be held on Jan. 17 and 31 at 5 p.m. in the Clarksville Commons Community Room. Registered yoga teacher Kristina Eberhardt will lead the hourlong classes.
According to Eberhardt, she sought to build on the popularity of wine and beer yoga events with a unique twist.
“I wanted a way to combine the two things I personally love most — besides my husband — yoga and cupcakes,” Eberhardt said. “I believe life is all about balance, and Namaste for the Kupcakes embraces that. It’s a little sweaty and a little sweet plus unites the community all while supporting a local business in Howard County.”
Mixing and mingling will follow the yoga session with mini cupcakes provided by Kupcakes & Co. All levels are welcome at the classes, which are for ages 16 and up. Tickets are $10 per class with a multi-class discount. Learn more at facebook.com/KupcakesCo.
Amateur sleuths looking to solve a “crime” can enjoy an interactive evening of mystery while supporting good causes. The Catholic Daughters of America Court St. Louis #2579 will host a whodunit event on Saturday, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m.
