Body and Soul Yoga

What a fantastic way to start the new year! I have to admit, after the mildest winter so far “since records began” Sunday 3rd January was a proper winter day. So, while the December session was more like an autumn day, this time we needed our layers to keep warm. Who says you can’t do yoga outside in winter? Nine of us hardy yogis gathered in the bandstand and enjoyed a whole hour of Surya Namaskar and Dru sequences. Thanks to everyone who came. I really appreciate it and hope you enjoyed the session as much as I did. There’s something so special about yoga outside in the crisp, fresh air. You can feel the energy and it stays with you for days. While other park yogis cancel sessions, even in the summer, when rain is forecast we’ve gone ahead whatever the weather under the cover of the bandstand.
Intentions were set and mentally repeated three times. Yoga was shared and energy created. It rained a little but we stayed mostly beautifully dry and cosy in the bandstand. Next time, though, Lorna I’ll be at the entrance where the rain can settle and you can take the dry spot by the lake view.
As we left the bandstand on the 3rd some of us wondered if it might snow next time. “I’d love snow,” Hazel enthused. “It will feel like being in Tibet.” So see you on 7th February and bring your snow shoes!
