Yoga Under the Stars

Have you ever practiced yoga outside? What about under the stars?!

This weekend, Hubs and I joined our friends for a yoga class at the Adler Planetarium. What an incredible experience! We practiced in the Grainger Sky Theater, and as we looked skyward we were greeted with incredibly beautiful pictures of the night sky, our galaxy and much more!

Be had to snap a group picture before class began. Once we started practicing the entire room went dark. Practicing in the dark is an experience - especially for your balance!

While practicing I kept thinking of the magnitude of our solar system. I did some research, and I think this quote sums up my feelings perfectly:

“It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson

What an inspiration place to practice!

And of course, we had to check out the view of Chicago from the Planetarium. What an incredible city!
