The start-up routine is familiar. Lots of commotion, people greeting each other, moving chairs, setting up easels, sharpening pencils. Enter the model, off comes the robe and everyone goes to work. You can feel it - there is an energy in the room. One can't help but absorb some of that energy when working with a group of motivated souls. Here are two thirty minute efforts from the first two "yoga room" sessions.

It fascinates me how we are all in the same room seemingly doing the same thing. But in reality everyone is working in their own private world, focused on the task before them with motivations and methods as varied as the personalities.
