Om Street Yoga


For the fourth straight year. West Hartford closed LaSalle Road for a couple of hours
early yesterday so more than 1,000 yoga enthusiasts could convene for morning exercises.






Yesterday I made a boo boo and posted these photos for several hours on the same day my post
about Eleanor was already running.  If you saw this post yesterday,
please go back and visit Eleanor.

They all certainly look enthusiastic and dedicated to their program of yoga. What a wonderful way for a city to promote good exercise and health!!

That is simply amazing. I might be able to handle the positions in the last few photos but, If I tried the positions in the first two photos, someone would have to help me up.

I love this kind of thing, Jack! I think you may have shown us this in a previous year's post.

I find it strangely heartening that so many people are into yoga. I think its very healthy and they all look wonderfully fit. I'm not sure we'd be able to muster that many in a city in UK.

Just tried the first pose, out of interest - and I can do it! Yay! There's life in the old girl yet! (Can't do it with my feet flat on the ground like the lady in the front row though.)
