Mat Goes Here: Central Park

central park yoga

Recently my office moved uptown to Columbus Circle. I’ll miss Bryant Park, but now we’ll be really close to Central Park, and my old neighborhood.

Central Park is over 840 acres, and in there, plenty of room for laying out a yoga mat. I’m more likely to practice yoga in a group when I’m way out in the open, like this first image shows. Doesn’t that grass look amazing?

But I also like the idea of a secret spot tucked away in a corner somewhere to practice in solitude away from the hustle bustle. Either way, I think there’s some outdoor yoga in store for me.

The first image was found here. And the second here.

Mat Goes Here: Retreat

Let the Friday daydreaming begin. I got hooked on these images of a retreat space on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. The green is so lush, the walls look cool to the touch and I love the swatch of drapery pooled in the copper tub in that first image.

The whole scene looks absolutely peaceful. The staging is gorgeous and I can almost smell the humidity (in a good way). I’ll meet you there.

All three of these images are from Elixir de Careyes.

Mat Goes Here: Secret Garden

This week I’m imagining yoga in a secret garden. The soft, soft grass. Dirt under the fingernails in downward dog. This looks amazing.

I found this image here, but can’t find it attributed anywhere! Troubles with Pinterest.

Ooh, let’s put the mat somewhere hiding back there. Under the shade of the tree. Listening to the leaves rustle in the breeze. Maybe a little babbling brook action. I’m happy.

I’d lay down my mat behind this door. Wouldn’t you?
