"Free Yoga Class at Bryant Park, NYC"
Today was such an amazing day! Beautiful day! Relaxing day! Productive day! Upsetting day! Irritating day! Bipolar day! (You know, one of those days). I finally had the time to join the Free Yoga class at Bryant Park by YogaWorks and boy, was it an interesting experience.
Here I am thinking I know what I’m getting myself into and little do I know I was strongly wrong! I’ve been a cheerleader for a few years (back in high school) and we’ve always tried to incorporate yoga stretches into our warm-ups and always seek to them in need of cooling down. So my flexible self thought I had this day of free yoga in the bag. Boy! Was it wrong! Sweating my butt off, shaking and falling! I really wasn’t ready but I held myself together. And trust me, there’s this great deal of accomplishment that takes over your body when it’s all done. Simply by listening to your body and being in control of your mind, body, and breathing is all that it is.
Supposedly, it’s National Yoga Month and next week will be the last week of free yoga classes. If you’re in the New York area, come on by! The classes are Tuesday, September 16th at 10am - 11am on the Upper Terrace and Thursday, September 18th at 6pm - 7pm on the Bryant Park Lawn. Thursday will, of course, be the last day and they’re giving out free yoga mats (for all you new yogis, such as myself) and glow bracelets for the night skies. It’ll be really relaxing and a nice way to end your day so why not right? Sadly, I won’t be there Tuesday but will be on Thursday. Hopefully, at least one of my lovely friends or you guys will join me on Thursday. A good day! 11 Sept 2014
