Tuesday, May 16th was a perfect spring day. The temperature was in the mid to high 70’s, the sun was out, and the weather was breezy. If that alone was not enough to make one feel happy and at peace, add in the yoga.
In partnership with Lyfebulb Patient Entrepreneur, Elizabeth Feinstone, and her co-founder Avery Westlund of Yoga on the Fly, we hosted an afternoon yoga class in the middle of Sheep’s Meadow in Central Park. As guests arrived, they were greeted with a yoga set up that included mats by Yoga by Numbers and canvas goodie bags curated by Yoga on the Fly that included soothing essential oils by DoTerra, a discount code for Satva yoga clothing, customized Yoga on the Fly hand sanitizer and chapstick, and a Fiji water bottle.
While waiting for the class to begin, guest picked their mats and quickly formed friendships with those around them. Both Elizabeth and Avery went around introducing themselves to guests, making it a comfortable environment for everyone.
Once the class was about to begin, guests were given a set of headsets by SoundOff TM. The headsets are a part of Yoga on the Fly’s business model, that allows anyone to engage in a yoga class while traveling, by going into a private mini studio at the airport, choosing an instructional video on a (provided) iPad, and doing yoga while being instructed through the wireless headset.
Once the headsets were on, all outside noise and hustle and bustle of New York City disappeared.
Avery led the beginner level class, which was perfect for everyone in attendance. The class ended with a very fitting tree pose.
At the end, everyone was zen. There was no better place to be at that moment, then right there in Central Park.
“It was a beautiful evening for yoga in Central Park, and a perfect way to end the chaotic day. New friendships were formed, old friends reconnected, and everyone left smiling. Thank you to Lyfebulb, Sound Off headphones, and Yoga by Numbers for their enthusiasm and making the evening a success!”
