Yoga Week started on Saturday, with Yoga on the National Mall, including a practice led by Shiva Rea. One thing I always loved about living in New York was going to yoga classes outdoors (whether on rooftops or in parks) and I never took advantage of enough of those opportunities, so I put yoga on the mall on my planner weeks ago. Even though I was pretty sore from my Friday workshop with Shiva Rea, I really did not want to miss the chance to practice yoga on the National Mall. Here are some more pictures from Yoga on the National Mall:

I took some pictures prior to the yoga practice starting:
The practice with Shiva Rea was the last hour of the afternoon. Her happy energy was infectious, which was good, because the cranky part of me, no matter how enjoyable the day was, was really aware that by then the Mall was really, really, really hot – I had forgotten that yoga mats get uncomfortably hot in the sun, but I wanted to stay, and fortunately so did my friend who had come along with me. And we had lots of fun.
It was a lovely day, and I felt really grateful to be there.
