Yoga One closed. But the Charlotte community refused to let it end.

Breathe in. Hold at the top.

While the former teachers of Yoga One feel a loss — a loss that none of them saw coming — they hold onto that “special magic of Yoga One.”

Yet, even if they aren’t ready — they breathe out and let it all go. That’s what yogis do.

“In that letting go, there is this creation of space, space for something new,” said yoga teacher Lauren Alexander. “Space for possibility, community, connection — and so much love and magic.”

In that space of creation, the former teachers came together, and dreamed up a new structure to practice yoga.

With gyms closed and at-home workout equipment sold out, fitness lovers get creative

With many gyms closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, WFH is making way for WOFH: Working Out From Home.

“I use a lot of makeshift materials to work out,” says Anne Barreca, of Brooklyn, New York. Without access to a gym or swimming pool, she uses what’s in her environment for exercise, including the stairs leading to her third-floor walkup, groceries, resistance bands, furniture sliders, dish towels — even her 5-month-old son, Benjamin, whom she calls “the world’s cutest kettlebell.” He’s the perfect size for squats and lunges (“comes with the noises too,” her husband, Brian, jokes).

“It’s better than nothing,” Barreca said. “Something is always better than just being lazy or sitting around. … There’s no such thing as a perfect workout.”

Exercising using one’s body weight or with what’s available, of course, isn’t a new phenomenon.

Hungary still closed for most non-EU citizens

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Hungary’s prime minister says that, except for Serbia, his country will not open its borders to citizens from several countries outside the European Union, as recommended earlier this week by the Council of the European Union.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Thursday in a video posted on his Facebook page that Hungary is also reinstating the “humanitarian corridors,” designated routes which foreigners in transit can use to drive through Hungary.

The Council on Tuesday recommended that from July 1, member states should start lifting the travel restrictions at the external borders for residents from 14 non-EU countries, including Canada, Japan, Uruguay, Montenegro, New Zealand and South Korea.

Orban said that “for now, except for Serbia, we can’t comply with the EU request … because it goes against the health-related interests of the Hungarian people.”

Here’s What’s Opened, Closed Or Modified In Phase 2

CONNECTICUT — The state will enter its second reopening phase June 17 just in time for Father’s Day weekend. Things like indoor dining, gyms and movie theaters will make their return albeit under strict rules that will define our “new normal.”

Around 95 percent of Connecticut’s economy will be reopen in the second phase, Gov. Ned Lamont said. The third reopening phase will take place sometime in mid-July as long as the state maintains the course in keeping coronavirus infections and hospitalizations under control.

Lamont’s administration has moved away from its target goal of 100,000 coronavirus tests per week for the state. State COO Josh Geballe said during a news conference that the state would continue to focus on high-risk settings such as nursing homes, prisons, healthcare and other essential workers. In addition, anyone with possible coronavirus symptoms should get tested, he said. There has been mixed messages from the
