This summer come experience yoga in the great outdoors! Being outside can intensify your yoga experience - providing the opportunity to breath fresh air and connect with the natural world around you.
What's the difference? The feeling of air moving on the skin can help you stay in the moment and can help you remember to keep your breath flowing. A little bit of warm sun on your skin can help warm the muscles without the artifical addition of central heat. Finding tree pose out in the world, surrounded by trees, may just help you become one with your environment, adding little extra rooting to your stance.
Never tried yoga outside? Join me starting in June for an 8 week series at beautiful Hageman Park in Livermore. Monday nights, 6:45-7:45. Register through LARPD, page 54 of the Spring/Summer catalog.
Yoga experience is helpful but not necessary.
