a yogi's best kept secret

I really don't know how this is possible, but it is certainly some of the most pleasing music to my ears in a long time. Recently, I became a fan of Vinyasa (hot power) yoga, a style that focuses more on fluid movements than extensive postures. It's a great workout that makes you seriously sweat (we're talking buckets!) while raising your heart rate and toning and lengthening your muscles. There is a fantastic and -- key word! -- inexpensive studio in Easton, which I was a huge fan of throughout this semester. However, when I got home, I researched and noticed that there were no Vinyasa studios near my house on Long Island, and that every studio in Manhattan was a little too pricey to warrant a semiweekly session. However, my luck changed this afternoon. In a marathon BBM session with my old intern pal NB, I found out that there is a donation-based studio located just blocks between Thomson Reuters and Penn Station. I can't wait to try it out!
