Raw, idiom, 14a: in the natural, uncultivated, or unrefined state: nature in the raw.
You know you've found the right space when, time after time, folks walk into the studio and say, radiantly, gushingly: "Ohmygosh, we're sooooooo excited you're here!!!!"
It's been a total pleasure thus far, barely two weeks into Glow's first month, to hear this sentiment spoken, over and over, out of the mouths of fired-up yogis. North Beach must've been really hungry for a yoga studio to fill this need. No matter how tired I am or how long the day stretches ahead, I always, always lose sight of everything but this sense of sheer joy, excitement, walking down those stairs to the street lighter, smiling, energized, hopeful, content.
Please join us at the new studio if you haven't yet had the chance. The space really just glows. Tonight, I'll be leading a Level 1 practice at 6, followed by an All Levels vinyasa at 7:30. You should see how night falls there. The funky chandeliers swing low beams throughout the room. There's certainly something to be said for a prana-filled studio...and the prana-filled bodies, and minds, and lives, that result.
See you on the mat, doves.
