Sometimes you need to take a moment—or five—for yourself.

For a morning routine: Start your Friday in the right pose at 7 a.m. free yoga at Race Street Pier on Columbus Boulevard.

For a freestyle event: Choose four different wines to create your own freestyle flight of wine at the Washington House in Sellersville, P.A. The evening starts at 5 p.m.

For an Iranian celebration: Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is holding a midsummer Twilight in the Gardens event tonight from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Enjoy cuisine from Persian Grill, dance to Iranian pop music and make a tile print at the South Street venue.  

For a nostalgic performance: See clips and hear scores from all 14 Pixar movies as performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Kimmel Center on Broad. The show starts at 7 p.m.

For outdoor cinema: The final set of screenings in Moore College of Art and Design’s Film Al Fresco is tonight in Aviator Park in Logan Square West. A series of short films and videos will premiere in the park at 7:30 p.m. while you chow on food from Samosa Deb and Jimmies Cupcakes.
