Yoga

(This is not me!!!)
I have started to do yoga this week. I have never done yoga, and all I know about yoga is what I have seen from the movies. (Think 27 Dress yoga scene, and that is it).

My reaction after my 1st 2 classes, it is hard. I thought yoga was about relaxing and stretching, well that is part of it, however there are some really hard poses. The instructor explains that some of the poses are supposed to help build muscle and I have had some muscle fatigue the day after each class. That is one of the reasons that I am going. I want to add to my regular work out and do something that is good for both body and mind.

While I don't understand everything and I am not very good, I think I will keep taking classes.

There are some things that make me want to laugh, like the closing statement "The light in me honors the light in you" and things like that are a little funny, but I can sit there and respect the time and practice for others.

try this again. I did yoga this morning. Not in a class though. I have been thinking about posting about yoga philsophy and me. I enjoy the long stretch and slower pace exercise but I don't get into the 'light in me' stuff.
