A few weeks ago, I decided to take the plunge and head to Brooklyn for this 2 hour workshop called Yoga for the Single Girl.
The class was held in a cute Cobble Hill yoga studio called Mala Yoga. This was simple, no frills studio with AC which was much needed as we have been in the middle of a heatwave. Class was led by Daniella who is this loving, joyful yogi. She is your quintessential hip, young, fun loving girl who likes to do some asanas and then have a couple of drinks afterwards. Yup she is my kinda girl!
About the Class:
It was a 2 hour workshop that included introductions and personal shares, a good amount on the mat, some yummy loving meditations, quick journaling, and then drinks and dinner afterwards at a nice Brooklyn spot.
What I love about the class?
- I was able to meet the other participants. Oftentimes, when you take a new fitness class its more focus on the class than going around and doing intro’s. Yes I would like to sweat but I also would love to make a new friend or two. It’s great for future accountability.
- It was challenging yet do-able. I was able to really focus my intentions from my head into the mat
- Meditation was yummy. I was able to tune into my thoughts and being able to surrender.
- I made a couple of new friends which was super nice!
Not really. I absolutely loved the class and the space that it created in my life.
I have been struggling with this idea that I am single and I hate to do the online dating stuff. I realized that its ok. For today, I can focus on expanding my circle of friends, meeting new people, trying new activities, to really be present in the now. For so long, I have been waiting to start living until I lost the weight or find the right guy, or engagement ring. Guess what? That is not a fun way to be living. Needless to say I will continue to try new things and invite you to be part of this journey with me.
Overall Thoughts of this Experience:
For the cost of $25, I not only discovered a gentle, loving yoga teacher, made a couple of new friends and well was reminded how important is to have fun in this quest of finding love.
