Bryant Park Yoga is back in New York City for its 12th season, featuring teachers curated by Yoga Journal. This week's featured instructor is Stefanie Eris, who taught at Bryant Park last night.
As summer nears its end (already?!), it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the real world creeping back into our lives. It's tough to trade in beach days for back to school and earlier sunsets. But if we step back and look at the world with a bird's eye view, we realize that with each new season comes an opportunity to see ourselves and the world more clearly, from another perspective. Embrace the joy, dreams, and fantasies you've concocted over the summer, but as fall approaches, come back down to earth and make those dreams a reality.
Yoga gives us the tools to move through transitions, seasonal or otherwise, with grace. After several rounds of Sun Salutations, practice the following 9 poses to harness the fire of the summer, burn off excess energy, get grounded, turn inward, and direct your attention toward something new.
