Namaste

The other day some of my work colleagues invited me to a yoga class. The last time I did yoga was over 5 years ago when we found out having biological children would be impossible for us. I thought I would take up yoga to help me deal with it, to find peace and center myself. Well, the class was a joke. With over 25 participants, the instructor didn't have the time to go around and make sure everyone was getting the full benefit of the class. I dropped out after a few sessions.

Can I tell you though how glad I am that I went? I had such a good class! I worked out muscles I didn't think I had, I stretched my chubby body into poses I didn't think a chubby body could. I was really perspiring (cuz you know, women don't sweat). Don't get me wrong, while I was in the class I was cursing but it was awesome! Can't wait until Tuesday when I get to go again.

Good for you! I used to practice Tai Chi and Kung Fu in high school and early college days- a lot of our Tai Chi classes had yoga worked in too. I miss it, and have gotten kinda chubby and thought I wouldn't be able to do it- time to rethink that!

I have never tried yoga. I think about it - does that count??

I would so love to do yoga, but I'm scared. I have no idea why though. I should really do it though. Good for you, I hope you keep it up.

It sounds like a good way to get out of the house.

I did it a couple of times a few years ago. I would be soooo relaxed that someone next to me would have to wake me up. Maybe I should try it again.

I used to do Yoga, but it's been a few years. I have been looking for a good(inexpensive) class to start uo again. I could use me some peace and centering right now.
