So I’ve found the most wonderful spot for lakeside classes in the park in Wollishofen. The only sad news is that we have had the worst summer in history here in Zurich, so nearly every outdoor class has been cancelled. the very few I was fortunate enough to teach were superb, with a perfect shady patch under the trees. The picture above was a sneaky shavasana shot. I couldn’t resist, everyone looked so blissful. Being outside adds another dynamic to yoga. You are aware of noises and movement around you but not distracted by them. Only when you reawaken at the end of class do your appreciate the subtlety of birdsong. It has raised my teaching confidence significantly and I hope to find a location for winter classes very soon.
