They’re raising awareness about domestic violence and donating the funds to battered women’s shelters. I met one of the founders, Scott, when I was covering the BBQ festival from a vegetarian angle so I was happy to contribute. They’re just shy of $25,000 so far this year and are hosting their finale party tomorrow night at Amos’ Southend. If you’re in the Charlotte area, stop by.
The studio is so much different than mine–younger, grittier… in a basement. SILENT. I really liked it. The lack of music threw me for a loop at the beginning since it’s so pivotal for the classes I do at the other studio, but it actually didn’t bother me at all and I found that the class seemed to go by faster without it. How odd.
It was a sweaty good time and I’m sure I’ll be visiting again.
One of the things I’m looking forward to throughout this month is visiting new studios. I think I need to remind myself that, while I adore my studio, I really just adore yoga. And that should be my focus. When I left Greenville, I swore I’d never do yoga again because I missed my studio so much and never thought I’d find anything comparable. Look at me now. You never know what’s out there.
