Free yoga. Free food. Free drinks. Yes, please.

In partnership with Food & Wine, the Renaissance Boston Waterfront hotel is hosting a special, one-time “Yoga in the Park” class August 14, followed by a reception featuring refreshments prepared by celebrity chefs Kristen Kish and Candice Kumai.

The one-hour yoga session will be led by instructor Goldie Graham, who teaches at studios such as Back Bay Yoga and Sweat and Soul Yoga. The hotel will provide bag-check services and complimentary yoga mats for attendees.

After sweating it out on the mat, participants will be treated to snacks made by Kish, the season 10 winner of Bravo’s Top Chef. Kumai, an author and a regular judge on the Food Network’s Iron Chef America, will be mixing the cocktails.

Attendees must email fwpromotion@foodandwine.com to register for the event by August 10. Event begins at 7 p.m.; check-in begins at 6:30 p.m. Renaissance Boston Waterfront, 606 Congress St., Boston, 617-338-4111, marriot.com.
