Candlelight Yoga

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

I have discovered MeetUp. It's a free online community that offers social groups of an amazing diversity. I joined a book club, small dog socialization and a couple of nightlife groups.
So one of my groups offered a candlelight yoga class. i signed up and was happy to see it was super close to home and only 4 people signed up.

I am still awkward after 10 months post knee replacement. My balance is wonky- one tight joint one loose and wobbly and I am not nearly as flexible as I was before surgery. I am still struggling with body dysmorphia and think I am much bigger than I am.

I had to chuckle as I was the smallest woman in my class. I was able to do the entire class easily and felt amazing afterwards. This was a beginner's class with special emphasis on injuries. I could not have tailor made a better class. It's offered every Tuesday and I will be back regularly.

Progress sparksters, progress.

    Great, Patti! Keep it up.

I also always think I'm bigger than I am when I'm losing. Lol, in the past, when I was gaining lots, I thought I was smaller than I was... at least until I saw a photo. I can't wait until I've maintained so long that my mental image matches my physical one.

    Sounds absolutely fabulous. I do early morning yoga and in the later winter and early spring I get to watch the sunrise as I practice. It is inspiring.

    Yoga is amazing. I use meet ups too, but didn't realize the diversity.
