Awesome day today. Guess what I did?!
Heh, get it?? We’re spelling Y-O-G-A! 🙂 (We told Heather she needs to work on her “G” 😉 )
Apparently this coming week is Yoga Week in DC, and today they were having free yoga sessions on the mall! It was a GORGEOUS day, so clearly we had to partake 🙂 It’s random things like this I’ll miss when I leave DC!
I met up with Julie, Heather, and Liz for the yoga-sesh — an impromptu blogger meet up! Julie is in town from Pittsburgh and we had plans to meet up anyway, so this was perfect 🙂
The mall area was bumpin’ — everyone was out and about on this gorgeous day!
So cool to be chillin on a yoga mat right next to the monuments 🙂
We arrived at kind of an awkward time in between sessions, though! At first, everyone was just sitting around while the instructors switched out, and these guys entertained us:
Then, the new instructor started leading people in fist pumps (apparently he missed the memo and thought we were at the Jersey shore) and various hand waving.
I decided to take matters into my own hands and led the girls myself in a mini power / vinyasa-style yoga sesh, complete with all my faves: plank, down dog, runner’s pose, crescent lunge, warrior 1, warrior 2, reverse warrior, triangle pose, and a bunch of chaturangas. They were telling me that if becoming an RD doesn’t work out, I can always become a yoga instructor 😉 It was fun!
I think you guys can probably guess what we did after yoga… FROZEN YOGURT!!! Duh.
This is pretty much a requirement of all blogger meet ups, I think 😉
We hit up a new place downtown called Fro-Zen-Yo! It’s a self-serve place with a billion flavor options… yessssssss:
I got a mixture of the plain tart, peanut butter, and mint yogurts and lots of fruit, complete with a cherry on top 🙂
Divine! Great company, too 🙂
Thanks for the fun day, girls 🙂 We need to play again ASAP!
And now I’m heading back out to a friend’s place! I can’t make it too late of a night though because my training buddy Ashley and I have 10 miles on the docket for tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. Yikes!
Have a great night!
