Can we just talk about how I realize how old I'm getting when I stay out after work and have two beers and feel like death the next morning? Anyone else? College me would be so disappointed. Well this morning was especially rough because I woke up bright and early for a 7am yoga class. I almost silenced the alarm and went back to bed, but I am SOO glad I didn't. It was a free yoga class at the brand new Kiener Plaza. (If you haven't been yet, go, it's gorgeous.)
The organization Yoga Buzz put on the free sunrise yoga class and it was so amazing to see so many people wake up to do a little good for their bodies. Have you ever heard of Yoga Buzz? It's an organization working to make yoga accessible for all. I recently did a story about their latest endeavor on KMOV. I mentioned it in my Daily Delights post last week but wanted to share more.
They are creating a living yoga studio at Earth Dance Organic Farm School in Ferguson. (Another awesome community treasure, check out their gorgeous produce at the Ferguson Farmer's Market). They are revamping a green house into a yoga studio with a "carpet" of plants and herbs. How fun does that sound!?! They will have a couple of work days to help create the space throughout the summer, you can find info here (and donate!), with the hopes of it being completed by fall.
BUT in the meantime, don't fret, they are helping get our minds and bodies ready for summer for FREE several times a week, They will be doing the Kiener Plaza yoga classes once a month this summer and the last two weeks I've been going to their free lunch class at the Cortex Commons. It was a perfect mid-day escape. A half hour of yoga on the lawn, surrounded by sunshine, the smell of coffee roasting at Ronnoco, and the sound of the Metrolink whistle blowing. They also have a free class at Ballpark Village on Wednesday evenings. But so far the early morning class has been my favorite. There is nothing like watching the sun rise over the Arch.
Thanks to Yoga Buzz, I checked off the first item on my Spring Bucket list! With summer quickly approaching I need to step up my game to check off all my goals!
