I'm stressed out. You want to know why? Because Charleston Power Yoga's free weekly class starts at 4:15 p.m. on Fridays. I mean, come on. Don't they realize I'm at work at that time? And that I'm stressed out because it's a Friday afternoon and I'm at freaking work and all I want to do is some yoga but I can't really afford to do it any other day of the week? Jesus. I'm really glad I found out about Jivamukti Yoga Charleston, which is just a hop and a skip over the bridge into Mt. Pleasant. They offer a bunch of "Hi-$5" classes throughout the week, held at the practical time of 6 p.m. or later. The Tuesday that I went, the studio's director Jeffrey Cohen was an incredibly helpful instructor, cracking jokes throughout his session and creating a supportive environment perfect for dedicated yogis or inflexible klutzes (like me). And I don't have to stress about my bank account anymore, either.
