Here are the best free events happening in Miami this week.
Yoga is good for the body, but this Monday, it's also good for the world. Rise & SoulShine recently announced its sister event, SoulSet, will happen on the fourth-floor terrace of Brickell City Centre. Yoga will be taught by SoulShine creators Jessie Potter and Julianne Aerhee, and there will be an opportunity for cocktails after the class. All proceeds will go to nonprofits that Rise & SoulShine supports, including Debris Free Ocean, La Luchi Foundation, and Restore Dignity. 6:30 p.m. Monday at Brickell City Centre, 701 S. Miami Ave., Fourth Floor, C Block, Miami. Donations are accepted via eventbrite.com.
The U.S. Men's National Soccer Team is back in action, and this Wednesday, its foe will be Jamaica. Sure, you can be a couch potato and watch the game at home (lame). Or you can head to American Social in Brickell and party like a rock star. For every U.S. goal, you'll get a free shot. Other specials include $15 Bud/Bud Light buckets, $3 tequila shots, and $5 Jameson shots. 7 p.m. Wednesday at American Social, 690 SW First Ct., Miami; americansocialbar.com. Admission is free.
R&B has made a significant comeback in Miami, and that's in large part due to the work of the RnBae Collective.

Enjoy refreshments, free flower crowns, and music by D Jane, Pazmal, and Got Now. 7 to 10 p.m. Wednesday at Technique Records, 853 NE 79th St., Miami; facebook.com. Admission is free.
