So, I have been attending Yoga classes for a full week now. Right now I am taking part of a great special that gives me unlimited classes for 30 days for $30.
I started last Sunday and have 7 classes in already! Yesterday, I attended 2 class one in the morning and one in the evening.
The classes I took are listed below and I have enjoyed each one in a different way.
This class is basic poses in Yoga in a very friendly environment, I have notice that this is more of a workout for me. I usually work up a little sweat during this class and it feels great. The teachers provide various alternatives for people to work with the poses and help out a lot.
This is a more relaxing class that I am able to move through a lot easier. The poses are not as difficult as the Yoga Basics. The stretches feel wonderful.
Candlelight Restorative Yoga
I attended this class last night and just LOVED IT! This is more of a meditative class. You only do a few poses but you hold those poses for 10 – 20 minutes with props to help out. This is a very relaxing class, you are stretching and breathing and thinking about the moment. Living the moment is something that I am learning about.
This short class is not covered by the program and is a community based class, meaning it is geared towards provide an inexpensive way for people to give Yoga a try. What is even greater about this class is that these benefit a charity, each month a new charity is selected. Great way to to give back to the community!
So, how do I feel about this. So far I am hooked, as is evident by looking at my attendance. Why? Because it is a nice way of getting some exercise, the stretches feel very good. It is also a great way of stopping and freeing my mind for that time, this time I am about to connect with myself. Sounds corny, huh… Well, I believe this will help me deal with the stress in my life and I did already notice one event during the week that I handled much better.
This is only week one of my 30 days and I will be supplying more information as I move forward in this journey!
