Talk about urban yoga.

Yoga instructor Melanie Freeman of Austin, Texas’ Black Swan Yoga Studio gets happy and shares the happy and it all wraps up with a sweet quote:

Bonus: Cat / Cow. Simple, succinct…get up on all fours, c’mon, don’t just sit there! Practice along—your back and neck and shoulders will thank you…and Melanie.

PS: Videos via Black Swan Yoga in Austin, Texas. Like their Page, if you like. Better yet, go by their studio if you’re in town and take a class with Melanie.

PPS: Melanie loves gelato.

I'd like to know the music and artists. That makes it very sweet. I guess they couldn't show all the people showing up to do yoga and that would have been the point, right? To share your yoga and the magic starts as people join in. I routinely stop to do a few yoga poses on the Capital Mall or at a nearby garden next to a museum, in the Moon Garden next to the Sackler Museum. I don't find it to be unusual to do yoga in public. It's not like bratfeeding.
