Outdoors: Yoga on the Mall
Don’t let the New York Times’ expose on yoga injuries scare you away from the practice, especially not with the annual Cherry Blossom Festival Yoga extravaganza approaching. The event sees thousands of yoga practitioners flock to the Mall for a mass relaxation. This year’s gathering will be extra special, owing to the organizers having commissioned Bluebrain to design a soundtrack. The group attached a heart-rate monitor to instructor Alison Adams and had her go through the routine she’ll lead on Saturday. According to the band’s blog, the “data is then used as a tempo map for the hourlong session that, ideally, will rise and fall generally in connection with what Alison is doing on stage, even integrating the sound of the heartbeat at various different speeds at different points.” That’s worth watching, even if you don’t go in for yoga.

For kids: Paper Airplane Day
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven,” go the ancient words of wisdom. Take paper airplanes, for example. The classroom is probably not the best place, nor time for them. But Paper Airplane Day at the College Park Aviation Museum? Definitely. The paper airplane derby is open to all ages and experience levels. Prizes will be awarded for most successful flight.
April 6 at the College Park Aviation Museum, 1985 Cpl. Frank Scott Drive, College Park, Md.
