one of the truly “MUST VISIT” Yoga studios is based in San Francisco! It’s called Laughing Lotus.
So where did it all start?
Imagine, I was on a round trip from Monterey to San Francisco, it was about 236 miles, and it was just because I wanted to be a part of Laughing Lotus and attend a yoga lesson there! Does that sound crazy? To me, definitely not. It was a great opportunity to have an unforgettable adventure! I’d love to do it again!
I started early in the morning because I wanted to have a lesson with Adriana from 12 noon to 1 p.m., and I wanted to have a relaxed trip without rushing. On the way, I stopped off for breakfast; I had Soja Cappuccino with a bagel and fresh juice. During the two and a half hours I spent some time singing, I sang the song San Francisco by Scott McKenzie.
“If you’re going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you’re going to San Francisco
You’re gonna meet some gentle people there”
Yes, I did meet some gentle people, but I forgot to put some flowers in my hair. LOL. I’ll probably do it next time! I did not even think about the road and suddenly I was at my final destination! What a quick trip! I arrived one hour early and I immediately found a parking spot not far from the entrance. What luck!
In front of the studio, I stood with my mouth open and looked at the beautiful colorful building. I could not believe that I was finally there! I was so excited to see these beautiful people. I opened the door and at the reception was a beautiful young lady. Her name was Ariana. She offered me tea and showed me the Studio, she was so friendly!
I did not want to change my yoga clothes because I decided to wear them in the morning. I placed my yoga mat in the room and met the yoga teacher. Her name was Adriana. She had long black curly hair. Adriana was always smiling and I could feel the good energy flowing from her. I felt so blessed to be there.
Adriana’s lesson was called Lotus Flow. It was not at all easy; it was pretty powerful. At the beginning of the lesson she spoke for a little while. She told us the focus of the class. She told us our peak pose and she explained our Mudra. She was perfectly prepared! We did a breathing exercise and short meditation and in the end Shavasana. I have to say, everything was more than perfect!
After the lesson, I asked her about the sequence and she explained everything! I guess she loves her job and yoga is definitely her passion!
Thank you Adriana for a beautiful yoga experience and thank you Ariana for being in the yoga studio. Thank you Laughing Lotus for being there for me!
