08/08/11: Becomming one with the yoga...
I think I'm really going to get into this whole yoga thing.
I've always been intrigued by it. I've always enjoyed it, in the class I would take once a twice a year, here and there, at the gym. But now that I'm going (somewhat) regularly, I'm really starting to like it. Really like it.
The class on Monday morning starts at 5:30. At 5:25 I was the only one there. I was secretly hoping that no one else would show...free private lesson! But 4 others trickled in right at the 5:30. Darn. :-)
It's not, technically, a "hot yoga" class....but she does turn the heat up to around 80F (27C) or so. Plenty warm enough for me. (hehehe)
I'm a pretty flexible person. Well...most of me.
My hamstrings, not so much. But hopefully these classes will help a little with that.
One can only hope, right?!?!?!
Last time I took the class, I grabs hand weights (the class is called yoga strength, she incorporates weights with the poses) that were a slight bit too heavy for my still weak right shoulder. This week I grabbed weights that were much too light.
Next week...jjjuuuussssst right. :-)
The sweat was rolling, the muscles were burning....felt great!
