Like free stuff? Like Yoga? Like Cookies? ....Then this post is for you!
I got home tonight at the lovely early hour of 6:15pm and debated between going for a jog around Prospect Park while taking in the still sunny day, or waiting it out for my Bikram class. As much as I LOVE Bikram yoga (and someday I will get around to telling you why I love it so much), I've been meaning to take a good-ole Vinyasa yoga class lately, just to break it up, and see how my body reacts to yoga without intense heat.
It was my lucky day, because while browsing through my roommate's just-arrived Time Out issue, I came across an article mentioning free yoga in New York parks. There it was right in front of me...the best of both worlds - yoga and the sunny outdoors in one place! And I could test out my old vinyasa skills for free! So I dashed on over to Prospect Park...
Obviously I couldn't get a photo of the actual yoga happening, since I was doing it along with everyone! It was so fun practicing yoga outdoors, and the 1-hour all-level vinyasa class was a perfect way to test out my old skills (and my new ones - apparently practicing Bikram for 3 years HAS greatly increased my flexibility!)
And just because I want you all to know, despite all my attempts to live the healthiest life possible, I have weaknesses too....this is what I ate after the yoga class...
Ok, I admit it was before the class. Definitely not would I recommend for a pre-yoga snack, but hey I had a craving and they were delicious! It was worth it, and luckily I have 2 roommates to share the rest with!
Have a wonderful Friday!
