Yoga!

So you may recall that I signed up for a yoga class at the high school, part of our community's continuing education service. Class met once a week, on Thursday nights.

The teacher was wonderful, he realized that some class members were novices, others quite accomplished. He made it clear that yoga is non-competitive, that we should do what we can and not worry about what others are doing.

I loved the class and was sad to see it end. He'll be teaching another session in the spring.

But what to do in the meantime?

I found out that the public library offers fitness classes. Including yoga.

My first class was this week. Most of the people in the class have been taking yoga with this teacher for awhile, but there were a few of us who were new students.

The teacher watched me during the class, and afterwards she told me that she knew from how I handled the poses that I was not new to yoga.

I think I'm going to like this class.

Well done in starting on the great journey that is yoga! It's been many years since I found myself in a cold school hall, stretched out on a mat, being pulled in all manner of unusual positions. Happy days indeed. My advice for you is to take it real slow; the chi will come to you soon.
