Having the Hudson River as a backdrop might be the ideal setting for many yogis, but simply being active is enough for Ridgewood resident Rachel Vassak. “Moving every day is so important, whether it’s a yoga flow or another way to get my heart rate going—movement is a huge mood-booster,” says Vassak, owner of Flow Yoga Studio in Ho-Ho-Kus. Inspiring others is part of her job as an instructor, so she set up a yoga photoshoot along the water. “Sharing some of my love of yoga helps me feel connected and hopefully can help motivate someone else to keep on moving,” she says after posting this behind-the-scenes shot with photographer Alaina Elizabeth. We’re ready to get started! For more of what’s going on around Bergen County, follow us on Instagram @bergenmagnj.
