From the first downward-facing dog to the final Namaste, the Snow Flow event on March 21, 2013 was a blissful calm in the middle of a snowstorm.
Devoted yogis transcended a blustery return to winter with sun salutations when Yoga in the Village returned to RiverWalk for the first day of spring. Snow Flow may have been a little too aptly named, but inside the heated tent, yoga practitioners who arrived bundled up in layers soon warmed up body and soul with asana, laughter and DJ beats.
It may have been icy outside, but the colourfully lit tent on RiverWalk plaza was a beacon of glowing energy. “‘Yoga central’ getting packed. Warming up to be a good one by the river!” Dick tweeted, as mats were unfurled and students stripped down to their lululemons. “I'm pumped to see what unfolds. Spring doesn't feel so far away,” remarked Travis.
While Bass Bus laid down some uplifting beats and the tent shone with calming light, students flowed and breathed and channelled their energies, led by teacher Jilaine Antoniuk. By the time the class reached shavasana, chakras were centered and toes were all warmed up. “The crescent lunges and music warmed things up for sure,” laughed yogi Travis. “East Village knows how to throw a yoga party!” added yogini Katie.
It was a very lucky Snow Flow yoga party for some participants. Three fortunate yogis won lululemon athletica prize packs, while ten more had their names drawn for much-coveted advance tickets to the next Yoga in the Village event. Flow in the Dark 2 will be held May 16 at a top secret EV location. Check back to this blog for chances to win tickets.
