Last week, I went on holiday to San Francisco. Work has been pretty busy but sometimes it really is for the best to get away, take a break and refocus your perspective. We all need to take a step back once in a while so that we can see things more clearly. Recently, San Francisco has become a major trend setting city. The city is so full of young people that it seems to be exploding with new ideas. But amidst the vibrant startup scene, there’s still a lingering presence of the free love and counterculture mentality that made the city so famous to begin with.
This of course means that San Francisco is FULL of yogis. I think every third person I saw on the street was carrying a yoga mat. I knew I had to try a class and my friend recommended I try Yoga to the People. They offer donation based classes, making yoga accessible to everyone. The class took place in this amazing loft in the Mission (SF’s Shoreditch equivalent), which overlooked the city skyline and was based on the Vinyasa flow sequence. The recommended donation is $10 and it’s an additional $2 to rent a mat. There was a great mix of people in the class. I found there was a much more equal balance between male and female students and as well as a large range amongst them from beginners to seasoned yogis. Yoga to the People also offers classes in New York and Seattle so definitely look them up if you’re visiting the States.
I’m back in London now and back to work. It’s just a few more weeks until launch so there’ll be no chance of a holiday for a while! At least I’ve satiated my wanderlust for the time being.
