Wow. I just took a frickin awesome yoga class. Candlelight Flow at Rising Lotus, you are the one. I do.
The mood lighting… the somewhat challenging but not crazy sweaty poses… the earthy sitar-type music…it was exactly what I was looking for! The teacher was fun, a little bit hippie/slightly vegan but approachable, and really showed us how to get the poses right. The room was clean and smelled like lavender and incense. It was…perfect. I felt incredibly at ease in the class, which never happens, as I’m usually looking over my shoulder at some petite yogette with her perfect body, evaluating my clumsy poses against hers.
In this class, there were all normal girls who didn’t look like they ate a twig for breakfast, another twig for lunch, and then a sensible dinner of kale. Yippee!!
Sorry…it’s just that in living in LA, it’s extremely difficult to find a yoga studio that doesn’t throw you into a sweaty room with a bunch of show off actors and models. I am a bit exhilarated by it all.
Starting next Monday, the studio is starting a 30 day yoga challenge where I can get unlimited classes for $99–the challenge is: Yoga every day for 30 days…think I can do it?
