Preempt those Monday work blues with some calming yoga by the beach. Moksha Yoga Center's Free Yoga Series concludes its summer set with this session a half mile south of Foster Beach. It's followed by a full-moon fire jam (incidentally, not the name of a yoga position) with djembe drummers, dancers and, uh, fire. Half mile south of Foster Avenue Beach, 5000 N Lake Shore Dr (mokshayoga.com). 6:30–7:30pm; free.
