If you remember I started to take Yoga classes this past month and have been loving it! It’s really pretty hard and even though I’m not the best at it, I still always looked forward to going.
Now the class that I was taking was the ‘Introduction’ class. This class is to just to introduce you to Yoga and to get you to know the moves. This is a good class before you move on to the next classes.
Well after the Introduction class was done on this past Tuesday, I wasn’t sure if I was ready to advance to the Beginners class. I mean I still can’t do the headstand correctly. I can’t get my shoulders rotated and lifted correctly. Seriously I don’t even know how to lift my shoulders when I’m upside down and my head is cupped in my hands while my legs are lifting and my hips are pushing towards the back of the room with my ribs pushing forward and my back straight. But guess what? The instructor said that our whole class was ready to advance. And without trying to be too corny, I think we all felt pretty proud. I never thought that I’d enjoy opening up my sternum and letting my hip sockets stretch just to name a few of the moves, but so far I’m really digging it.
And now that it’s Thursday, it’s my first ‘Beginner’s’ class. I wanted to get there early so I could get a good spot way in the back of the room. And even though I’m not the best at all the moves, and it seems like the instructor spends just a little bit more time in my section of the room giving me advice on how I can do the moves better, I’m excited to see what I’m going to learn in this next class. I won’t learn how to do it if I don’t go to class, so I hope that I can stick to it.
But for now? Well a hot bath and a cold beverage while I’m soaking is on my schedule tonight. I think I must have pushed or moved something that might not have been moved for a very long time.
