    My ashtanga class has our class outside lately because the weather's been so nice. Well today it was SO humid, we were dripping sweat. When we got to shoulderstand that sky turned dark and all of a sudden it started pouring rain. It was so wonderful. I felt so full of joy, all I could do was laugh. It was the best yoga experience I've ever had... doing yoga in the rain. We stayed out there in the rain and finished the class. I felt so connected to everything... it was beautiful. Nature and yoga inspire joy!

    Tell me your stories of joyful yoga!

    It sounds beautiful. Unfortunately I do yoga in my living room which believe it or not sheds no light on life. I'd love to take a yoga class that took place outside.

    Meditation or yoga in a natural setting is harmonizing and a wonderful way to just practice.


    I love the sound of water so if I can not be outside then I try to bring elements indoors. That includes plants as they cleanse the rooms and just bring life in.

    Was wonderful to read your pleasure in the natural and the peace that it brought you :)

    I relly enjoy it when it is raining outside and I can hear the rain on the roof while in corpse pose

    I never did yoga in the rain, but I would like to try it some day.
