YOGA TO THE PEOPLE

My day off started off with delicious mixed berry-vanilla soy yogurt-coconut water-acai smoothie. I've had the same Magic Bullet for about 5 years now and it's been working fine until now. Juices are leaking all over the machine because the seal has worn off completely. I think it's time for a new one, I saw one at Kohl's for just $30. This is the best for making smoothies since it requires minimal clean up because it only has few parts and it takes very little counter space.
 In the afternoon I headed down to the East Village and St. Marks Place for Yoga to the People.
After yoga we rewarded ourselves and went to Klong, fun Korean restaurant/bar where we had some very berrylicious cocktails and Korean kimchi and seafood pancakes. Sooo good. St. Mark's Place was packed with high energy people.
 For dessert we ventured out to Spot, pretty dessert restaurant where the desserts were just heavenly. I'll definitely come back.

  3. Hei, tätä varmaan on täällä sulta moneen otteeseen varmaan kyselty, mutta ajattelin nyt kun olet ihan pro tällä alalla, eli niin onko joku hyvä (keskihintainen) hotelli/hostelli, jota uskaltaisit suositella pariskunnalle, joka mahdollisesti kesäkuussa sinne New Yorkiin matkustaisi? Toiveena olisi siisti, hinta kohtalainen ja rauhalliset yöunet ilman baareista kantautuvaa meteliä. Sijainneista ei tällä haavaa vielä hajuakaan. ;)

  4. On peut laisser des commentaires en français aussi, de ce que je vois... Tu parles la langue de Molière un peu?

    I drooled over the yummy pics of "Spot". Hubby and I are coming to the Big Apple at the beginning of June - I'll keep the place in mind.

    What exactly is "Yoga to the People"? Is it outdoors? I tried finding a good yoga class close to home here in Paris, but didn't succeed. I wanted something in the lines of power yoga and only found relaxation... for seniors mostly. I was disappointed. Especially since I thought that it could help me in unwinding. Now I only go jogging for that purpose.

  5. Tiina: Hostelleista mulla ei ole valitettavasti mitaan hajua, en ole koskaan yopynyt enka kuullut kokemuksia niista, mutta Expedia.comista loytyy ihan kivoja hotelleja totuudenmukaisten kuvausten kera. Midtownista lahella keskuspuistoa (hiljaista) ja kavelymatkan paassa Times Squaresta ja lahella metroyhteyksia loytyy esimerkiksi Park Central, Wellington, Salisbury, Buckingham, Hudson ja Warwick.

  6. Susu: Oh wow, welcome to New York! I'm sure you'll enjoy June in the city. And yes, try Spot for desserts, it was heavenly.

    Yoga to the people is donations based yoga school (if you're broke you don't need to pay to enjoy the benefits of yoga). So you pay whatever you can when you get to the class. They have indoor studios, although outdoors yoga sounds lovely, I wish I could find a rooftop where they have yoga classes. I'm sure they have those somewhere in this city...
