So I decided to start a yoga ritual at 7am daily. Yes, that sounds awesome! Lizzy, being absolutely a wonderful yoga partner, so witfully ignored my wimpy text this morning and basically dragged me to class. The sky was still half-lit and the air was cold when we got into the studio; after an hour of energizing yoga, we opened our eyes and the morning sunlight was shining through the glass windows onto the wooden floor of the studio. It felt like I only really woke up at that point, body and mind. And I still have the whole day to play with, do whatever I need and whatever I want.
Anyone in the city wanna join? it's called Yoga to the People.. it's a donation-based yoga studio and they have classes throughout the day monday-Sunday! check out http://yogatothepeople.com/new-york-yoga.shtml
They go a little too fast for me sometimes...meaning when I would want to hold some of the poses a little longer and to take more time with transitions. But it's nice considering it's donation based. Try it at 7am too if you can- it's the least crowded class- as you can imagine.
