During the very first round of Sun Salutation it started to rain... Refreshing!

The participants could´t care less though. They sticked to the practice as the rain got stronger and louder accompanied by thunder.

After 24 rounds it was possible to move under the roof. Another option was to stay outside, practice a bit more under the rain and then join the others for some ginger tea. Alina could´t help continuing to practice under the rain. 
There she goes!
