What a treat! Ready to rock and roll for free at "Yoga in the Park," thanks to the Yoga Room! 

Enjoying a free yoga class at the Gantry, complete with NYC skyline as a beautiful backdrop. Thank you, Yoga Room!
Feeling the warm sunshine and blissful yogi vibes...

The Yoga Room offers several free yoga classes on the gantry during the summer!
Playing dead.
Savasana, baby! Savasana! It's a hard knock life.

I had my first taste of hot yoga back in January 2011 and became a devoted mat hugger.
The moment I unroll my mat, my body begins to decompress.
I love how all the ick seems to dissolve as I move from one pose to the next.
The emotional hangover? GONE. HELLO and THANK YOU, PRANAYAMA.
If I'm feeling happy, I do yoga. If I'm feeling blue, I do yoga.
I'm easily in the best shape of my life. Easily. And! I don't even have to run around the room to do it.
My refrigerator looks less like a morgue and my body is craving stuff it's supposed to (except for chocolate, but I've made peace with that). Now, pass the Kombucha, would cha?

Unlike any other form of exercise, yoga provides more physical and emotional benefits than I can ask for. It's also one of the few physical activities where you can get better at it as you age.
Most important, I find it F U N !!!
Forget the gym. Let's salute the sun!
Multi-tasking? I'll pass, son. I'm a believer in practicing the art of monotasking these days.


P.S. What's everyone doing this weekend? Oh, nevermind. Get out there and have some fun! Lots of it! You deserve it. ;)
