Tara Stiles in Paris

Have you been following American yoga wunderkind Tara Stiles? A globe-trotting yoga teacher, author of Slim Calm Sexy Yoga and Yoga Cures, and designer of Reebok’s line of yoga clothing, Tara was on her way back to New York City from Moscow (where she shared her bad-ass hotel room practice), and made a pitstop in Paris. In addition to sightseeing, she rocked some handstands in front of the Louvre’s pyramid.

In the video below, Tara asks for people’s favorite places in France so I thought I’d share with you in case this is Tara’s way to gauging interest in French workshops or trainings (oui, s’il te plait!) Let her know via her YouTube channel, Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook page. So many touchpoints for connection! Just the way yoga intended ;)


May Day

Today is La Fête du Travail (May Day), a day on which people give each other sprigs of muguet (Lily of the Valley) to commemorate Spring. As it’s a national holiday, expect yoga studios in Paris to either be closed, or to offer revised schedules of classes for the day and -- in some cases -- the entire week and then some (Ashtanga Yoga Paris, Big Apple Yoga France, Centre Anjaliom, Espace Nataraja, Himayoga, Paris Yoga, Qee, Samasthiti Studio, Studio KellerYoga Bikram Paris, and Yoga Village, for example.) Be sure to check the listings before heading out with your yoga mat!

In the study of flowers, the muguet symbolizes sweetness, humility, trustworthiness and heralds the return of happiness. All things that you put into practice when you do yoga :)
