Technically speaking, it's been time for outdoor yoga for a while now, but for some reason I just haven't gotten around to it. Tonight is the night, and my plan is to drag my mat to the park come hell or rain or whatever it is that's supposed to deter you.
There are, of course, any number of places to get your yoga on outdoors in New York City. I don't usually try the Manhattan variety, because 1) I don't really want to get into the Subway after I just spent an hour doing happy things outside; and 2) I have a notion that yoga is kinder and gentler off the main island. I may be wrong--please do send me recommendations of awesome places to do outdoor yoga in Manhattan and I will post them next time!
I like Bend & Bloom in Prospect Park. It can be a bit crowded, sure, but you get the chance to see a lot of blue sky, and if you are lucky there are fireflies illuminating your path as you walk home. Every Thursday at 7pm.
And then there is Yoga Sole's Sunday morning option at 10am, also in Prospect Park, which I really REALLY like, in large part because Yoga Sole is where I practice regularly, and I just like the vibe.
Wherever you go, tell me about it! Also, don't forget you can receive all of these ramblings about nature and urbanity and what to do in NYC directly to you email by signing up on our homepage.
