Taking the plunge

So I've decided that I will most likely be quitting my gym and joining a yoga studio. Namely, Laughing Lotus which is literally one block from my office and therefore also conveniently located near the train. I used to take classes there now and then when my friend Mario was doing his teacher training there, and I loved it. I'm just feeling like I need to add the spiritual part of the practice back into my life. I've also felt lately that though I love the teacher I take from at NYHRC, her classes are feeling a bit redundant and I need a new challenge.

I went to Laughing Lotus tonight for a class that left me feeling totally centered and at ease. I felt like I got a complete practice from standing poses to seated poses to inversions, and it was HARD. I'm going to be sore tomorrow for sure, but it's such a great soreness.

Plus, they have this amazing tea in the studio for after your class.. it's warming and cinnamony and lovely. And they also have Newman's Own ginger cookies, which I totally needed tonight because I was starving after class.

I think this is a really good decision for me that I've wanted to make for a long time. I just had to take the plunge and do it.
