Yoga Download

Hello Fashionistas,

As you may or may not know, I have recently become a housebound freelance-writing hermit. Gone are my days of endless auditioning, running all over Manhattan to sing my best 16 bars for some apathetic casting director, young enough to be my own child. Instead I have, of late, become something of shut-in, frantically tapping away at my macbook like I'm data-entering for MI5. It's wonderful to be so busy with work, but it does mean that making it to yoga or aerial silks class has gone way down on my to-do list. In fact, often I stop writing to go and make lunch only realise it's 7pm. As my mother would say: "Oh Ruthie, your life is such a fiasco!" (Cheers Sal).

I guess it was serendipity then when I was contacted by Yoga Download in association with Blogger Babes asking if I would like to try out a free trial of their online classes to rate and review on my blog. A yoga class that I could do at home, whilst keeping one eye on my inbox? YES PLEASE. 

It's kind of like the Netflix of yoga. You can download or stream classes, browse by length, level and style. Of course the best thing is that it's totally portable. Why not download a Vinyasa class to take with you to the departures lounge? Sure, you'll look totally mental, but you'll be too zen to give a shit. Or maybe take one with you to work for your lunch break, you can feel all high and mighty as everyone else looks on, eating their sandwiches, drooling.

Having tried some of their classes at home, I invited some friends of mine; Vanessa, Deena and Jack to join in the fun. We snuck up onto a rooftop in Bushwick and had us a secret sunset yoga party on my birthday. (Don't worry, it was followed by a MASSIVE dinner - I'm not that virtuous).

For this post we took the Align and Flow - Stability and Freedom Class

  • Oh and just in case you were thinking how poised we all seemed. Here I am falling flat on my face as my friends laughed at me. Nice.
