2 of My Milwaukee Favorites

Moving to Milwaukee has been an adjustment for me. It is super cold as in 10 degree days are norm here and not an exception but the most surprising part for me is the astounding amount of snow  we get in one week. While learning to deal with the climate I am now calling home, I've found two places that I go pretty frequently and am starting to love. It's crazy how fast you can find somewhere that makes you feel like yourself and the people are kind and remind you of your friends from home. 

Milwaukee Art Museum

If you have read my blog for a while, you know that I love love love museums. I go to one in each city I visit, eat lunch there from time to time, and attempt my hand at sketching. The Milwaukee Art Museum has a fine collection of art - including a Kehinde Wiley who painted Obama's presidential portrait and awesome Danish furniture but cool events like MAD - Museum after Dark, Naughty Bits Tours - tours of the museums more raunchy paintings, and Yoga at the Museum during the winter which I attend faithfully. I have a student membership and you can usually find me there for a couple of hours a weekend sketching in the galleries, trying to improve my abysmal sketching skills.

ZenZen Yoga Arts 

Theriz is a joy to learn from and the owner of Zen Zen Yoga Arts. I found out about her studio from Groupon, where I bought a two pack of the playshops the space hosts. In first playshop I attended, I was super nervous about all of the inversions but it was such a good workout and quite invigorating to be inverted. The second playshop was more of a blast as I started to feel much more comfortable in my inversions and my practice within the aerial hammock. As a girl who practices yoga and pilates pretty regularly, this type of class took me out of my comfort zone in a way that I can't help but to be addicted to now. I pretty much go every other week now and while I am sore after each class, I am amazed at what my body can do.

If you are ever in Milwaukee, check these two places out! I promise you won't regret it.
