Laughing Lotus Yoga Center is the most fun yoga center that I've experienced. The yoga is very playful, but you get a great workout both spiritually and physically. Their rooftop yoga classes are one of my favorite things about New York in the summer, and will celebrate their 7th anniversary this coming Monday, 10 July 2006. As Dana Flynn, co-founder and co-director of Laughing Lotus explains in her trademark Dana way, "I love the feeling of being up away from it all, a little closer to heaven. No matter how hot down below, there's always a cool breeze up above. The playground inspires us all to play and we can all use more of that—swinging from the rooftop, literally!" I love it too. I can't wait to see the clouds pass over my head while I am in shavasana.
