Yoga Rocks Rocks

So often, funky NYC yoga class take place in the evening when yours truly is trapped in the office.  So, when the lovely ladies at Well and Good NYC mentioned that Sports Club LA was offering 6:15 am Yoga Rocks classes at the Top of the Rock through the end of August, I immediately picked up the phone to sign up.

The view before classI am so glad that I did.  I went this morning and it was amazing.  The setting at the Top of the Rock was serene and perfect for morning yoga.  When class began, the moon hovered not far from the Statue of Liberty.  The air was cool, the view clear, and, 67 stories up, the city was silent. 

A few times during class, I couldn't quite close my eyes when we were supposed to.  It was just so nice gazing out at the downtown view.  During savasana, I watched the clouds.

The Vinyasa was excellent.  Our instructor, Angel, was sweet and welcoming.  She made it easy for advanced students and beginners alike to work at their own level.  I found the class challenging and invigorating.  My arms definitely got a nice workout and, two hours later, I'm still feeling stretchy and open.  Without a doubt, I'm  going back.


The view after classRegistration for Yoga Rocks opens 24 hours before each Tuesday and Thursday class.  Classes are free to members and $25 for non-members.  Contact Lisa Gausepohl at or 212-218-8600 sign up.  Just don't take my spot!

I've always wanted to do yoga. I bought a video once but I think it would be a better experience to have an actual instructor. I'd need the help. Lol! :)

I tried yoga videos first, too! I like classes better now, but there's something to be said for working out at home, too.
