Raw, adjective: 9. disagreeably damp and chilly, as the weather or air: a raw, foggy day at the beach.

A foggy Thursday morning with my boys Pradeep and Tom, ready to get our asana on.

I teach a 7am class every Thursday at the top of a skyscraper down in the Financial District, and when I hop on the cable car to head up and over Nob Hill in the still-dark dawn, it's always one of those moments wherein I think to myself: how did this strange foggy urban yoga-tinted life of mine ever come to be?

And then I yawn. A lot.

And then I chug some more coffee, and we do a little Downward Dog, and once 8am rolls around, I hop back on the Muni toward Mission and Van Ness for my own dose of ass-kicking, courtesy of my Urban Flow family-of-choice.

Teaching there this afternoon at 4:30. It's donation-based, dears. That means yoga for everyone: yer mom, yer dog, yer annoying little brother, that irritable clerk at Walgreens who always looks like he's about to cry. But especially for him.

Come home.
