Fridays + Yoga

Have you ever noticed how much you look forward to Fridays? It’s kind of crazy if you think about it. You wake up in the morning in a better mood, everything seems more manageable, 3 o’clock brings old school summer vacation giddiness, you seem to have time to do every little thing your heart desires. It’s an overall wonderful, fabulous feeling.

Sad that it’s reserved for only one day…

I’ve been keeping busy this week, since boyfriend’s been out of town (only since Wednesday… is it bad that it feels like he’s been gone for too long already?). Busy means lots of work, dinner with my roomie and her dad, and believe it or not, some Yoga.

I bought this book

the other week and have been really excited to delve into it. Tara Stiles is highly regarded. She’s Deepak Chopra’s yogi, and has a really simple, easy to understand way of explaining the benefits of Yoga. It really helps you understand how Yoga can help your body (by helping your mind).

I’ve done Yoga three times this week, so far, and I’ve felt pretty great. I get to work energized and happy. I guess this could be a placebo effect (I’m always proud of myself when I’m able to drag my lazy butt out of bed and do something active), but I can’t wait to see how it continues to improve my life. I’ll keep you guys posted.

In the meantime, I seriously recommend checking out this book. It has “cures” for things like Monkey Brain, Office Body, PMS, Heartbreak, Low Self Esteem, Depression, Anxiety, you name it. For a full list, see here.

If anyone has any recommendations for Yoga spots in the city that they love (and any that are even remotely affordable..??), I’d love a share!

Have a lovely weekend all!

Xo,

AG

(PS Happy birthday weekend to my lovely friend Niha!)

  1. I love love love Prana Power Yoga – it’s hot yoga. I go to the Brooklyn one and there is one in Union Square as well. I think there is a Gilt group coupon for them today! I also love Yoga to the People – donation-based, but it does get really crowded. I have been recommended to Moksha Yoga (more hot) but haven’t had a chance to try it just yet. Let’s do yoga together!!! The perfect get-together! Oh also I just read ‘Poser’ and freaking loved it. Put that on your book list.
