I love my yoga class!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

My local YMCA has several yoga classes. emoticon Most of them have an additional fee but I found one that is free. I can afford free. emoticon I am able to take it in-between spinning classes. emoticon It isn't at the most ideal time for me since I would rather finish my workout day with yoga but I manage with what I have available. Well that and beggars can't be choosers.

So, today after my first spinning class and some time on the treadmill I went to the yoga class. It is so relaxing. It is such a great way of getting rid of all the tension I have in my life currently. When I first started taking classes I couldn't hold the poses very long and had horrible form. Luckily for me, the instructor was wonderful and would come over and show me how to do a pose better or how to use modifications to help achieve the pose. Well today I noticed that the instructor didn't have to come over and show me what to do. I was doing everything better. I also no longer need to rely on the yoga blocks. I'm so much happier with what I have achieved. I also feel better in my yoga clothes. 73 pounds ago I really wasn't happy wearing anything close to tight fitting. Now, I can wear appropriate clothes and feel comfortable in it. I love progress.

    I like yoga, but my favorite class at the gym is PiYo. It's a combination of pilates and yoga. The way my instructor teaches it is it's a super-fast moving class, like a power yoga. It's tough every single time but I love it. It's my Wednesday "thing." emoticon

    I think it's time for me to take a serious look at yoga again. Haven't done any since high school. But I'm sure as heck not ready for CrossFit yet!!! Gonna have to look into it.

I'm glad you found a class that you love and at SUCH a good price!
