Monday is coming. And you’re going to need to chill. I know I am. Luckily for us, the DCR is hosting free yoga on the Esplanade after work on Mondays. I’m just going to paste the info from their flyer below. Actually, I’ve been thinking for a long time that I should do yoga (my posture needs improving and I would like to achieve a more peaceful mental state), but I am not sure where/how to start. I would love to hear suggestions or input. I’m not terribly afraid of embarrassing myself (as it happens more or less constantly) but I have absolutely no prior yoga experience and am clueless about the different varieties/points of entry.
WHAT: The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is hosting a series of
free yoga sessions on the Charles River Esplanade. All ages and abilities are
welcome. The program, which also ran last summer, attracted as many as 100
participants each evening.
Participants should bring an ID (under age 18 must be accompanied by an
adult), water, and a yoga mat, and wear comfortable clothing. A limited number
of yoga mats will be available for the class. Unwind after a day at work or
school – or wherever you’ve been! Stretch and relax and revitalize your body
and mind. Enjoy this lovely urban park at sunset.
