Yoga in Market Square

When Megan told me that one of the things she had planned for our weekend in Pittsburgh was attending an outdoor yoga practice on Sunday morning, I couldn't have been more pleased. It has been on my bucket list for awhile to do this and while I practice a fairly gentle form of yoga, I still felt like I could keep up.
When we arrived at Market Sqaure, the sky was bright blue, without a cloud to be seen and it promised to be another hot day. But, the heat didn't keep anyone away and every available inch of the square soon filled with yoga mats.
The instructor was very good and for a novice like me, was clear in her instructions and explanations of the different yoga poses. It was a little faster in transitions than I am used to, but I was able to work up a good sweat and enjoy the sun and sky as I moved through the practice. The hour went faster than I anticipated and before I knew it we were relaxing in Shavanasa pose and I felt a real sense of accomplishment and peace.
I started yoga for the health benefits and always come away feeling flexible, strong and even somewhat younger than when I started. But, a benefit I didn't plan was being able to practice with my daughters and perhaps, that is the best of all.
Happy Wednesday!

  4. Sweet time with the girls:) I have been wanting to try yoga, you inspire me to give it a try! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. How fun! I've wondered what that would be like doing yoga outdoors like that - I usually go to a studio, a HOT studio haha but under a blue sky with your daughters, a pretty amazing experience - love the pictures of you girls!!

  6. Daughter time is the best : ) I just finished a good book...It's called 'the Daughter' by Jane Shemlit. I think you might like it too.

  7. Looks like you had loads of fun. I would love to do a class in a setting like this one.

  8. This was fun to see! :) I am about 25 minutes south of the Burgh! :)

  9. How fun!

    Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  10. I would definitely read this interesting book. Yoga is actually very healthy exercise with its different poses for different health issues and the best part is it won't harm anyone unless you are doing it wrong. One can add regular yoga and other exercises to keep yourself away from the diseases. You can also take help of healthy fruits and vegetables to keep yourself healthy for longer years. You can also take help from the juices like the Goji Berry Juice to get good amount of nutrients for your daily needs.


Thanks for reading!
