Long week behind you? Ease into a relaxing (but wildly fun) Friday-through-Sunday with a spot of baby and me yoga, or a viewing of a stage adaptation of Winnie the Pooh, who is the chillest bear on the planet. This weekend’s Blossom Kite Festival an Archi-Build Studio are also complete vibes. Get into it all! Your omm will thank you.
