Last year I made the "Yoga Girls" quilt. Today I'm showing you the REAL yoga girls who I hang out with about three days a week at yoga class at the Y and then afterward at Starbucks. (Not all of them every time, but there's usually at least five or six of us around the table, and sometimes eight or nine.)
We had a potluck at my house last weekend and it was fun to see everyone in party clothes instead of yoga garb.
I told them to bring colorful food, and they did!
Besides lying on our backs at yoga, we girls have each others' backs in life. Over the years we've shared marriages, births, cancer, injuries, graduations, vacations, books and what to fix for dinner.
What really brings us together is going to "javasana" at Starbucks for an hour or so after each class. "Java" is for coffee and "asana" is for yoga pose. We usually spend an hour or so, but sometimes in the dark rainy winter months it stretches out long into the afternoon. Why go out into the gloom when you can while away the hours with friends?
(My dress is by blogger friend Judy Sall, otherwise known as Tie Dye Judy. It's really cool and comfy.)
Wait, this isn't a yoga girl! It's Pam's husband, but he made it onto the blog because of his sunny shoes, shirt and smile. We invited husbands to the party, even though they don't go to yoga.
So here's to the yoga girls!
