After work on Friday, I decided rather last minute to attend a pop-up yoga class at the Vanderbilt Museum right on the water in Centerport, NY. You may recall, the Vanderbilt Museum was also the home of my 31st birthday, but this time, I was viewing it right as the sun was setting over the harbor—and it was slightly warmer out.
I’m not one for making spontaneous plans, but there was something about the nice weather that made me decide to take the short drive and attend the yoga class. And I’m glad I did.
The Vanderbilt Museum is a beautiful sight (if you’re ever on Long Island, I highly recommend taking the tour), but being able to lay down my mat for a sunset yoga class overlooking Northport harbor was extra special.
As we began our practice, I had a hard time keeping my eyes closed and missing out on the gorgeous views. Add to that, doing yoga on squishy grass makes the balancing poses that much harder. But, overall, the setting was serene and once I came to terms with my surroundings, I was able to enjoy the class and get my workout on.
After the class, I took the short stroll down to the mansion, which was once the home of William K. Vanderbilt II. The sunset views were even more spectacular from there.
Sometimes changing up our routine can be really beneficial. The sunset yoga class was a great way to end a long week—and kick off the weekend.
