Firm Roots Yoga

The Center for Students in Recovery and the UT Micro Farm are collaborating to bring Yoga to the UT Community. This new program features an array of local yoga instructors, currently led by Jade from the Living Yoga Program. In addition, the UT Micro Farm is gifting an assortment of organic veggies from good ol' Texas soil. We have about 20 mats, but if you want to bring your own, feel free. Our space can accommodate around 30 to 35 people for a good class. We have had steadily increasing attendence, so do arrive early if possible. The program is free and open to anyone interested.

It was a great intermediate class, plenty of room for everyone. The yoga instructor was bubbly and full of happy energy. Got a tiny bag of veggies (cherry tomatoes, mint, and a little eggplant) to take home afterwards.

I would have to say it wasn't worth my time! I am UT staff but work offsite, and there was no other information about how to get to this location other than the street address, assuming that every person affiliated with UT knows the precise location of every building! Once narrowed down the general vicinity, I couldn't find parking because I don't have a campus pass because again, I work off campus!
I see a parking attendant who is ticketing someone so I park behind him and call out to him "Excuse me?" he ignores me. I call again, nothing. I get out of my car and before I can get one word out he furiously and condescendingly YELLS, "Do you have a handicap sticker?" I say, "No, but I just have a quick-" He interrupts again and YELLS, "Get back in your car and move right now you're in a handicap spot!"
I couldn't believe the gall. Needless to say, I am reporting him. I finally found paid sticker parking and attended the class. It was fine for a free class. But really, it's kind of hard to take the instructor seriously about your "third eye" and "mantras" when they've just cracked a fart joke...
