A Yoga Adventure!

Hey friends!

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!

    Ugh, that “G” is no bueno! Maybe next time I’ll keep my legs straight? Not sure where they were going…

    I wonder what Yoga week means?? We should probably look into that. ;)

  5. 5

    Can I just say that I am ubbbber jealous that you got to do yoga on the mall! I knew that this week was “yoga week” in DC and it looks like it was really fun! I moved out last week and your pictures made me homesick!

    P.S. I went to that yogurt place before I left and it was divine! If you have a chance to go back I recommend that red velvet yogurt!

    Enjoy the city :) I miss it terribly

    I´m sure that Fro-Yo tasted amazing – I even had some myself for dessert today :)
    Wish you an amazing Sunday, love!
    Brazilian XOXO´s,

  8. 8

    Looks like you ladies had a lot of fun. I had emailed heather to let her know the event was going on. Looked like a great turn out. Wish we had one of those do it yourself fro yo places in Oregon!

  9. 11

    Ahh, your pics make me miss DC!! But only a few more weeks and I’ll be back romping on the mall…Can’t wait!

    Is Fro-zen-yo a new place? My absolute favorite is Mr. Yogato in Dupont Circle…if you haven’t been, you MUST give it a try!

  10. 12

    Yoga on the mall looks great…so many people turned out! What a perfect afternoon in DC!

  11. 13

    Good luck on the run! You definitely have a back up career ;)

  12. 14

    Yessssss… gosh I love that picture! Had so much fun with you and the other girls. Can’t wait to do it again. Seriously, be a yoga teacher :-) I’ll have my recap up sometime soon :-)

  13. 15
