Thunderstorm Yoga

If it wasn't ridiculous or completely insane:

The most powerful yoga practice would be outside in a lightening and thunderstorm.

Something I never realized, but while living in BC summers consisted on almost zero thunderstorms. Here in the maritimes thunder and lightening storms are a staple in the summer. Summer and lightening hang out together. I missed it.

As I type Halifax is just wrapping up an intense chain lightening+hail crazy thunderstorm complete with a hazy yellow sunset and double rainbows.

I need to figure out a way to make yoga in a thunderstorm happen without killing myself. 

I'm thinking a gazebo with a lightening rod nearby to divert possible hits. Sounds like a solid plan eh?


  1. Sounds like the most awesome kind of insane...

  2. love this. What a cool experience! :)

  3. Love the pictures.

    We had yoga classes as usual that night at Sunrise Yoga. There was a terrific thunder and lightening storm going on outside the windows. We all had a marvelous view from our 5th floor windows. Lots of lightening shooting across the sky and hitting the ground.

    The power went out a couple of times. You know what! You do not need power to do Yoga.
