My friend Claire invited to go do yoga with her yesterday. She’s been attending the free yoga classes offered by Lululemon in Bryant Park. I had heard about these free yoga classes and had been interested in going, but somehow never got around to doing it. They offer classes on Tuesday mornings (10 – 11 am) and Thursday evenings (6-7 pm). They even have free yoga mats for you to use, so you don’t need to schlep your mat with you to work.
The usual instructor wasn’t there, but we had an interesting class that mixed Vinyasa yoga (what I usually practice) with martial arts. The Wednesday rain storm cleared much of the humidity, so it was pleasant being outside and practicing my sun salutations. Afterwards Claire and I had a lovely dinner at Las Ramblas, a tapas restaurant in the West Village. Las Ramblas was one of the first restaurants I went to when I moved to NY. It was strange to think that almost four years had passed since my last meal there with my friends, Alexia & Vin, who moved away from NYC two years ago.
