Oh, October, how I love thee. Actually, it’s more like the entire fall season, but October kick starts that for me. If you haven’t tried goat yoga, this is the month to do it, since there are several places hosting events this month. There are several north Dallas food and fitness events you should be excited about this month. Here are a few, and, as always, I will update throughout the month.

Sign up for the Sunday October 1 barrestore class at The Barre Code Plano, earn two challenge stamps, and bring a required donation for Operation Kindness. Class is full, but you can secure your spot on the waitlist.
