blissful yoga

Tuesday again...gotta love that yoga class.

Tonight was especially wonderful because the weather was so great that Lara decided that we should start our practice outside. It was GREAT! The slight breeze, the perfect temperature, the nature noises in the background and the feeling of practicing yoga outside (a first for me). Words are not enough to describe how fabulous it was and how relaxing.

We did manage to attract some attention though as we were up on top of the hill overlooking the sports fields and the track. There was a softball game going on down there and several people using the track including a couple of young girls who crawled up the hill to peer at us and giggle. It was kind of fun to listen to their cute giggles in the background. Then one of them said, rather loudly, "That's Mrs. Dessy!" I admit that I lost my balance at that point and had to stop and laugh. I turned towards her and waved while my fellow yoga practitioners attempted to keep their balance with huge smiles on their faces. After waving back my little friend and her companion skipped back down the hill while we continued our class.

Eventually it started to get a little chilly so we moved our practice back inside. We had spent an hour outside instead of the few minutes Lara had suggested for sun salutations. By the end of the class we were all so relaxed I don't think anyone wanted to go home...we probably would have stayed and slept of the floor of the multi-purpose room if we thought we could get away with it.
