Getting Back Into Yoga

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Especially mine.
Today started off early with a trip to the grocery store. We needed a lot of food for the house and for tonight’s special Mother’s Day dinner. I stocked up on a ton of fresh fruit, vegetables, and some of my other favorite snacks…Biscoff anyone?
Last night, at the Lucia 5th anniversary party, my friend Carey and I were discussing yoga and studios around town. My gym offers yoga classes so I stopped going to one of my favorite yoga studios located in downtown Saratoga – Yoga Mandali. The atmosphere is wonderful and I love the classes!
As far as class prices go, they are expensive and I don’t feel right about paying for a gym membership plus extra yoga classes. Carey told me that Yoga Mandali does a special class on every Sunday that features a newly certified yoga instructor. The best part? The class is only $5! I think this is a great way to enjoy both the yoga studio atmosphere and experience new instructors.
The class starts at 11:30am so I knew I would be hungry if I didn’t eat before. I’m currently snacking on a bowl of pineapple chunks and one of my mom’s blueberry muffins. Yummy!
After yoga, I plan on coming back here to work on some delicious Mother’s Day treats! Have a wonderful Sunday!
What are your Mother’s Day plans?
Do you prefer taking yoga studios or taking a class at a gym you belong to?
I definitely prefer the atmosphere of a yoga studio. If there is a spin class going on at the same time as a yoga class at my gym, all you can hear is the pumping music and the instructor over the microphone – not relaxing!
