Whenever I mention my love for yoga someone tells me I need to check out yoga at the Colony Hotel. It is led by Keith Fox and has live music with a rotating group of musicians. Know before you go....I went to sign up online, paid for the class, and then got a little confused because there was no actual way to sign up for the class. So I called over to the studio and spoke to Keith Fox himself.
Turns out you pay for class, but then its a first come first serve experience. That made me a little anxious since I heard people flock to this class and it can be seriously packed. Keith told me that they usually get about 100 people.
I made plans with my mom to go, and decided to get there around 9:15 to get a relatively good spot in the larger/main room. Class starts at 9:30 and is 90 minutes and follows your standard vinyasa flow. There are so many people around you but everyone is focused on their own practice that you don't even really notice.
Sometimes I do like to watch for transitions and variations, and didn't really get that in this particular set up.
The music was fantastic. I regularly listen to "yoga" music during the day while I am working. Somehow its become my favorite background noise to focus me.
I can see why people swear by this class. I am going to try some of their other classes during the next few weeks.
