Last Saturday I went to Cherry Blossom Yoga, which was sponsored by Lululemon and drew quite a crowd. Christine of Yoga Twist on Life wrote a great recap of the occasion, which I encourage you to check out.
This was my second time doing yoga on the mall (see last time, at DC Yoga Week’s yoga on the mall event in 2010) and I have to admit I was just as distracted as last time. Even though my yoga practice tends to be very focused when I am practicing at a studio, the second I practice outside, I get completely distracted by my surroundings. For example< I had to take a picture of the view under my arm when in downward dog:
The sky was a brilliant stunning blue and I was grateful for sunshine as, despite enjoying being there, I suspect I would have been far colder without the gorgeous blue sky and warming sun. I plan to do yoga on the Mall again, though I do hope to get more focused as I practice outside more.
