Galentine's Candle Making + Yoga

  • Wildlight Yoga 4140 N. Milwaukee Chicago (map)

Grab your closest gals for a cozy night of interactive candle-making and hatha yoga in the candle light. 

Chicago candle-maker Jessica Snively will teach you everything you need to know to make a soy wax candle in a reused or vintage container. You'll create your own signature fragrance from a blend of scented soy-based oils. As the candles are setting, Wildlight Yoga owner + teacher, Kelli Wefenstette, will lead you in a 60-minute gentle Hatha practice. All are welcome

All the supplies are provided, including wax and fragrance oils. You can bring your own container or purchase one on-site. You’ll get 1 lb. of wax, and depending on the size of your container(s), you’ll leave with 1–2 completed candles. (For reference, 16 oz. of wax will fill a container approximately the size of a standard can of veggies.) Jessica's poured candles in nearly everything that can be described as a “container”—quirkier finds have included a glass cowboy boot, vintage egg cup, honey bear jar, and mug that says “He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”—so feel free to go on a thrift-shopping spree before class.

Hot tea + allergy-free treats will be served. Students are welcome to bring wine.

Admission is $50. Pre-registration is required. Members receive 10% off. No refunds.
