Yoga at The Great Lawn: Before We Were Rained Out. . .

Yoga at the Great Lawn Tuesday evening was a lot of fun, even though it was rained out. I took some photos of the event- it may be the closest to Woodstock I will ever get!

This was the line we were waiting in before we got to the lawn- and we got there at 5 pm!

Once the gates opened, we were given a yoga mat from Gaiam and Jet Blue. In this photo I have my pal and fellow blogger Mari (from Namaste Mari-check out her photos!), and behind her Erica (from Erica Miss America-check out her photos!). . .

. . .And Jess (in blue) from Fit Chick in the City (read her post) and her friend Daniella. And a lot of other people!

This was how close to the stage we were! My view from the front of my mat. . .

When I first sat down, this was the view behind my mat. The pic at the top was my view when the event was "about" to start.

This was the last time the sun peeked out from the clouds.

The crowd is ready to get it started!

This is a ton of people dancing to crazy comedian Reggie Watts and his song "Get Your Yoga On". And then it started to sprinkle, and then rain. I didn't want to take photos because I didn't want anything to happen to my phone!
But it was a lot of fun and I hope that I will be able to participate again when they have a rain date in the future. Thanks to Flavorpill, Jet Blue, Gaiam, and my friends for a really amazing experience!
