I love yoga, but I don’t often post photos of it on my blog. After all, it’s simply not kosher to wave an iPhone in the air during class.
I’d intended to practice at my home Y for the past two weeks, but a cold got in the way. Having recovered, I finally made my way to the YMCA in Norfolk’s Freemason district last Saturday. Here are some photos from that adventure.
The Mind/Body Studio is on the top (sixth) floor of the Blocker Family YMCA.
It’s located in the beautiful Freemason Historic district.
The view from the studio is lovely — even on a foggy day.
This is Pennie Haws…
…she’s one of my favorite yoga teachers.
Here’s a book she recommends for people starting yoga.
The view of two churches as we headed to Freemason Abbey (it’s the one to the left, across the intersection).
One of favorite Sunday morning haunts is Freemason Abbey, which occupies an old church building in Norfolk’s historic Freemason District. Dave and I headed there for brunch the day after I returned. I was still on Irish time and we arrived just as the doors were opening.
Hope you can soak up a bit of the ambiance from the photos I snapped….
It was warm and cozy inside, despite the rain outside.
The Abbey is decorated beautifully for Christmas.
Dave headed in to grab a table.

Yum! They have a gluten-free menu.
