When I first moved to Dallas, I started looking online for fun things to do. One of the first things I found was for Yoga on the Bridge, and I was SO BUMMED when I realized that I had missed it by only a few weeks. Fast forward to this year, and you better believe I was there doing yoga on the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge along with 1,092 other people!
This was such a cool experience! I started out my day at Chino Chinatown for the most delicious brunch I have had in a really long time. I had Tres Leche French Toast and it was actually more delicious than it sounds, if you can believe that! I met up with a few other ladies (from a Meetup.com group!) and we had fun eating and talking and getting to know each other better. (Shout out to one of the gals, Chelsea, from The Dancing Runner!)
The yoga session was awesome. It went for an hour and was easy enough to do for someone who is still a beginner (ME!), but I think that even someone who is really experienced still enjoyed it. Thankfully we got a good spot near the middle so I could hear the instructor really well!
The weather was absolutely phenomenal. I can’t even say enough how perfect it was! The temperature was in the upper 70s, there was a nice cool breeze, and the sun was shining down the entire time. The only thing better than the weather was the location! I mean, we were in the middle of a giant bridge- how cool is that!?! It had a great view of downtown Dallas and really the only slight negative was that you could feel the bridge shaking due to the cars driving on the other side. (Yes, they kept half the bridge open to cars! Don’t worry, there was a concrete barrier AND a fence so it was plenty safe.)
I’m so glad that I went and I’m already looking forward to going again next year! I need to keep doing yoga so that next year I can be even better and more confident during the session!
