We are SO excited to share our reschedule Bloom date with you! Bloom will take place October 24th. Same place, same times of day, same giveaways, structure and schedule – same everything! We can’t wait for that day and agree that it’s best to give everyone the space and time to help ensure the health of our families and community.
We are absolutely planning for this event to take place on our intended reschedule date! That said, walking through a pandemic together is unprecedented, and we also know that it’s best to continue to do all we can to adhere to the health guidelines outlined by the state of MN and the CDC. With that in mind, we will hold off on additional updates until August.
Looking forward, you can expect to hear from our us in August with event updates and our plan for October. At that point, we will provide you with information on how you can transfer your ticket if needed, as well as swag bag pickup options if you would prefer to keep your ticket for that reason, but would be unable to attend.
We always remain available for questions and appreciate your understanding as this pandemic has affected us all in so many unexpected ways. No matter what is happening n the world, our commitment to you and our community, will never change.

Prenatal and postpartum moms are invited to our ‘moms only’ yoga VIP experience! At Blooma, they believe in nurturing mamas and building community. Come together, step on a yoga mat, and take time for yourself! This gentle yoga practice is open to new and experienced yogis and is followed by meeting other new moms and moms-to-be, light, healthy snacks and chair massages from Advanced Medical of Twin Cities! AND each momma will be walking away with a pass for one future class at Blooma!
