I had the absolutely phenomenal experience of practicing yoga with bazillions (okay, thousands) of fellow yogis in Times Square yesterday. They offered three classes, and I chose the evening one after a lovely day of work at Karma Kids. I couldn't have asked for a better companion - my best friend in the world, Lisa! We were among the very first to file in (numbers 49 and 50, to be exact) because I was absolutely determined that we were going to be able to get that free mat! What a bummer it would have been to wait all day and then not be able to participate because I didn't feel like hauling my own mat around all day.
Anyway, I digress. The class was led by Douglass Stewart of ISHTA and YogaWorks, two studios I thoroughly enjoy. It was lovely, the weather was perfect, the onlookers were fun, and Times Square was its usual insane self. It's probably the first time I appreciated it instead of letting it drive me insane in a very long time!
I'm having an insanely hard time uploading photos on my blog today, which is sad considering that's a majority of what today's post was going to be. Luckily, you can view the album here on Picasa.
It was an extraordinary experience that I plan on repeating next year!
