Twilight Yoga @ the Chase Park Plaza

Last Wednesday, a group of 30 friends and not-yet-friends converged on the rooftop of Saint Louis's chicest hotel for happy hour sips and bites and a bit of Vinyasa flow. Now usually I'm not game for yoga in unheated spaces anymore, due to the wondrous effect heat has on my body to make it sweat out all the unpleasantries, however in this case, I had to participate. The Chase Park Plaza boasts a very chic gym called Santé, and anyway, do you see those views below? Exactly. They made it very hard to settle down and focus on the breath, but as far as #yogaproblems go, that was not a bad one to have.

That is I, bottom right, going rogue in Outdoor Voices.

These two were so beautiful. I assume from the body language that they're close friends. Yoga is best practiced with a friend.

An incredible sunset over the Clayton skyline took us into savasana.
