#SMCSFBlogOff - Jazzy yôga

I've been practising yôga for more than a year now.
It's not only yôga it's a method. DeRose method.

But this is not the issue today.

My classes take place in an unsual place by Quartier Latin in Paris. It's a... cave!
And if you know a little bit the history of Paris, of jazzy Paris, you may know that in the 50's, 60's, 70's and even today there are still some jazz clubs run in caves around Quartier Latin.

So, the other day the director of my school told us that "our" cave used to be a jazz club in the 60's and 70's.
Then there was probably lot's of smoke from cigarrettes and cigars. Now the only smoke one can see/smell will come from the insense we alight to practise.

The director is still working on the history of the place, she is still gathering information about the different occupiers of the cave.  She is already in the 80's, she is pretty much close to our epoch.

For those who believe in aura, energy, all of this on the walls, maybe we get this happy old energy during our classes. Maybe love stories started in this place, or ended there. Great or sad news were given here. Or people just spent good times there.

Well, for this and some other reasons I love Paris.
