Friday evening I ended the work week on a good note leaving work a little early (although I was one of the last people in the office) and getting back in time to head over to Commons Park for a yoga class by the Platte River. A nearby yoga studio – Root Yoga – organizes the monthly Yoga by the River summer series that welcomes different teachers each time and benefits a local organization; a DJ handles the music. A lot of people showed up, including a good number of guys. Maybe I’ll get Woody to come to the August event with me!
Practicing yoga as the sun went down and the temperatures cooled was a perfect way to end the week. And I was a lucky raffle winner and went home with a pair of yoga socks.
I took another yoga class this morning, at the Lululemon store in Cherry Creek. They start with a 5k run before yoga, but given it was raining when we woke up, I decided to workout in the gym then head over for yoga. It was another great class, a bit different than I’ve done before as there was not one sun salutation, but I loved the focus on balance and found myself reaching poses I haven’t been able to do before! The teacher was from Vital Yoga; I think I’ll check out that studio soon.
Time to close up for the night so I can get some sleep tonight before another week begins.
August is almost here, what are you hoping to do before summer ends?
