So for anyone who lives in the new york area theres going to be a HUGE yoga event in times square sponsored by athletica this wens day. Its the Summer Solstice Yoga event and its totally free. Basically you go to google and search for yoga times square. The first one that shows up is the one you want. You’ll need to pre-register for which ever class you want. At the moment because space is limited you can only register for one person at a time and for one class only.
BUT WAIT THERES MORE
First 1500 people, this is all from word of mouth I’m hearing btw, gets FREE YOGA STUFF! Like mats, water bottles, etc :D I registered for the 12:30 class. They’re calling it bikram yoga because we’re assuming its gonna be a hot day and we are in the middle of the city lol. Anyway go and register and be apart of something big! This will be soo awesome <3
One more thing, if you take pictures and tag in on instagram (#YogaTmSqr or something like that) you enter for a chance to win $350 worth of yoga stuffs. So yay~
Below are some helpful resources and meal ideas that don’t break the rules. Also, it is important to know when serving yourself “real food” you don’t need to eat as much as you would of the processed stuff! Get ready to fill up fast.
Eating out tip: Most restaurants do not offer 100% whole-wheat (a lot of “wheat breads” are made with both whole-wheat and white flours) so it is best to just avoid things like bread, breading/breadcrumbs, crusts, flour tortillas, etc. It is also recommended to ask questions when it comes to sauces because a surprising amount contain sugar. It can be difficult to avoid refined grains and sweeteners when eating out so we usually try to focus on finding restaurants that serve locally grown/raised products. For more tips including specific meals you could order at some chain restaurants check out this post.
“It takes courage and intelligence, you know, to do the stages of Yoga right, and to start with this Hatha Yoga… It’s just you and nothing but you, standing in one spot frozen like a statue with no place to go for help or excuse or scapegoat except inward.”—Bikram Choudhury (via fuckyeahyoga)
I wish I had my own Guru…I probably would be able to advance more in Yoga if I had an instructor that was focused on solely me. Sure I take classes butt thats in a room filled with maybe 15-20 or more people. I’d like some help and adjustments to but in a room like that, I get looked over. :( Does anyone here have a guru of some sort? Doesn’t matter if its precisely in yoga, just in whatever activity you partake in.
