I first went to Holy Cow in 2000. I knew little about yoga, the practice. Tracy, the owner, was the instructor. I've always been athletic, physically fit. I was a competitive, nationally ranked swimmer for years. I frequented local gyms (Trey's in West Ashley etc). Did the 45 min treadmill etc...never liked it, it was a chore.
The impact of that first class, physically, mentally and emotionally; changed my life forever. I'm not diligent with my yoga practice. Over the years, I'd go 3 times a week for months, then not for 6 month. Get back into it for a good while, then not go for 2 years. The things I learned however, stay with me everyday, whether I'm practicing at Holy Cow or not.
I've taken classes at several other yoga studios throughout the Charleston area. Nothing's ever come close to the experience, the "vibe" or energy that's never changed at Holy Cow. Holy Cow will always be the true essence, the core of yoga in Charleston.
Wow....I am wondering why the need to say "Like most white people in this state". What does "most" encompass and why would you even consider letting a comment like that come out of your mind and spill out into the public...I would've swallowed that one and taken it to the grave. I can bet that If I searched every article ever printed from CCP, there would be ZERO that made the slightest negative ref to "most black people in this state". Perhaps I will write and submit one detailing how I've been treated by "most black people" in this city since moving here 17 years ago. I learned- I was a cracker w/in weeks from an old woman who ran me off her porch. My co-worker & friend (whom I charmed w/ my ignorance of the fact that in this city-"most black people"- inheriently hate the white man) told me that I was the first "white girl" she ever liked. This was w/in my first few months....
But to address your one-eyed, sadly unprofessional and irrelevant attempt at some point.....EVERY single black person I know voted for Obama, I knew why and they didn't mind saying "yes" when I asked them if it was solely because Obama is black,or at least they think he is.
Why cant "WE THE PEOPLE" see that no one in Government really cares about parties, it's a way to divide and conquer, and that-they have done well. I suggest we all, black-white or otherwise, wake up to what's truly going on before it's too late....DAMN!!!
