NEW YEAR, NEW ME Calm and Lengthen With Fireside YogaBy Delaina Dixon | January 27, 2015 | Fitness
Hey ya’ll! You know we’ve been working it hardcore: running, dancing, lifting. But sometimes, it’s about taking it in the other direction and getting your stretch on.
That’s how TVDivaGal and “Princess Diva” contributor Chanel Omari found ourselves in a Downward Dog at Mercedes Club’s Fireside Yoga last week.
Mercedes Club, located inside Mercedes House residencies in New York City’s midtown West Side, does indeed have a fireplace right in the middle of the gym. Now if that was meant to take our mind off all the bends, planks and warrior poses, it workedΓÇª a little. Our instructor, Tara, wasn’t taking it easy on us as we posed, but the flames did give us something to concentrate on.
Not such a problem for TVDivaGal, who has done her fair share of yoga. But for Chanel, different story. Princess Diva forgot to mention before she showed up that she’s never done a practice. In reverse warrior pose, Chanel’s hands were in an entirely different direction. And while most people were in upward dog, she was in child’s pose. But to her credit, Chanel didn’t quit ΓÇô the DivaGals’s motto.
After the class, we learned that Mercedes Club membership is complimentary to residents living the building’s most exclusive top story apartments, run by Instrata Lifestyle Residences.
All we can say is lease us up!
