National Yoga Day Inspired Me!
Sunday, January 23, 2011
I was brave yesterday and went to the free yoga class offered by the local yoga studio as part of National Yoga Day. Wow! I am impressed!! I am not sore at all, felt more energized and it will definitely help build flexibility. I am going to join their Restorative Yoga class once a week and then work on poses with a beginner yoga DVD here at home. Going to the library later today to check out their videos.
I have always been intrigued by yoga but afraid to go to class because I'd look like a big klutz who doesn't know what she's doing. For some reason, yesterday I just had the urge to do this. Off I went by myself, something else I usually don't do but no one else was interested or available. The instructor was so encouraging. She provided lots of options for the poses t and told us to do the child's pose at any time we needed. I could do everything she showed us and she was so complimentary. "Beautiful" must be her favorite word. The breathing she had us work on was amazingly relaxing. In fact, the whole experience was quite relaxing.
I guess it just proves that trying something new can be a great experience.
