Yoga in the Park Update!

Last weekend, a group of my female relatives and my dad headed down to my parents’ beach house for what was going to be a “racing” weekend.  In the end, two of us ended up running the 5k–my cousin Courtney setting a personal record!  Despite the fact that the big race weekend was well, not very racy, we enjoyed our time at the beach and I lead the gals in the first official, “Yoga in the Park” session on the deck. It was a great experience for me–doing yoga with my mom, auntie, and cousins while my dad giggled in the kitchen was very fulfilling!

Tomorrow, Thursday July 19, will be the first yoga session actually in a park!  REMINDER! If you are planning on coming, we will meet in front of the restrooms in Wright Park at 4:30 and then find ourselves a cozy little spot (preferably not near the bathrooms) to get our zen on.  Please bring a Yoga mat,  towel (to use as a prop), and an attitude of gratitude! PICNIC TO FOLLOW–if you are coming e-mail me or text me or message me in some form or another and let me know what you’d like to bring to share!

Stay tuned for a few schedule changes coming up in the next few weeks!
