Yoga

So last night I put on my cute little, black, capri sweat pants and a tank top and left the house to FINALLY start going to a yoga class.  Everything I was wearing was a little tight (which is one of the many reasons I was going to Yoga) so I felt a little self-conscious.  I have also never taken a yoga class so I was even more self-conscious.   Then I got a little lost because, even though the numbers on the buildings on Classen are HUGE, I am still so challenged in remembering on what side of the street the odd and even numbered houses or buildings sit.  So then I was late and I have a feeling that yoga people don't want someone coming into their class all flustered and exasperated and messing up their energy.

When I finally arrived, the doors were locked and the lights were off. Whew! I was committed to giving it a go and to embarrassing myself if I had to, but I was really glad that people's first impression of me wouldn't be that I was a flake who couldn't make it to class on time.

When I got home, Phillip had set up the Wi Fit for me so I just stood on the board and did some poses there.  I'm getting ready to do that again and will continue until I can make it to a beginners class.  I'm ready for the change that yoga brings...in my body, in my mind, in whatever area it will bring change. I think this will help.

In the meantime, can we talk about how sassy that Wi Fit can be? :)

  1. This may sound super lame but I have been doing Yoga (not very well) for about a year and it has been such a positive experience. . .mentally and physically. I hope you will try it again.

  3. Yeah, the fit is totally sassy! Yoga teachers are normally much nicer and more encouraging than that. They will make you work... but you don't want to punch them :)
