pretty places: shobha fidi opens with a month of deals (nyc)

as you may know, in addition to my yoga realm, i do dwell in nyc where i work with a great team of like minded folks at shobha.  it is with pure excitement and pride in my team, that i wanted to share that our 4th location is officially open, today - thursday, september 20th, 2012.  i am truly lucky to work with so many great people.  yesterday we all came together to make sure that all of the final touches were finished so that we could be ready to open!  and now we have a great month planned of g.o. deals - as in grand opening deals.  to find out more about shobha and the deals going on at fidi, check out the official website,

side note: as a team, we have official nicknamed shobha financial district, shobha fidi, which is pronounced more like f-eye, dye, instead of fitty :)

pretty pal: nadya andreeva

my amazingly smart, fit and super healthy friend, nadya, was recently a speaker at the ted talks - yes those elite, genius presentations that are all over youtube - so if that doesn't certify her as awesome, nothing will.  i first learned that nadya was presenting about a month and a half ago, but sadly i did not attend and the youtube videos don't go live right away - but now hers is!  so be sure to watch the video and check out nadya's website, spinach and yoga, where she discusses yoga, healthy living and how to use ancient ayurveda in a modern world.  in the video she demonstrates the art of nuali and talks about poop - yes, poop.  or more importantly, healthy digestion and how to get things moving.



pretty places & poses: katonah yoga & mandala vinyasa

today i finally got around to checking out the (somewhat) new studio, katonah yoga, in nyc.  it's located on the cusp of chelsea and the meat packing district on a rather quiet block with shady trees (a nice reprieve from the 90+ degrees that nyc has been for the past week).  the studio is quite, with a lightness to it - probably due to the very white, but also very soothing decor - my favorite part being the sky blue ceilings and honeycomb-esque cubbies for your stuff.  i took david reglin's class, which was as always an intelligent sequence that kept me focused, with a few sprinkles of sarcastic humor. today's class was an especially sweaty, slow flow. basically it was perfect for the hot weather and for slowing down the week. 

since i purchased the new student 3 class pack (3 classes for $30; mat included), after class i began browsing the website to check out the other instructors on the roster.  that's when i stumbled upon this youtube video of taylor flynn.  i'm not really going to say more much about it other than it mixes mandalas and yoga magic.  yes. magic.  happy weekend!
