Happy summer dear friends! It’s such a wonderful time of year to be outside – to play, to ride bikes, to run, to picnic…and of course to practice yoga!
One of my favorite things during my summers as a yoga teacher in NYC was to practice and teach free yoga in our neighborhood park. Luckily, I’ve been able to do some outdoor yoga here in Northampton too.

It becomes even more magical when we get to share it with a community of other yogis – you can feel the positive energy spreading out into the atmosphere!
