At the appointed time, I arrived for my first Yoga Class. Now, I've taken a little class here or there - like when we went to a spa for three days and a yoga class was offered...but, never really made an effort to practice or do any more.
I can now tell you my body is not in the least bit flexible! It does not move in those directions! But, I am going to give it my best for the eight week class. The teacher, Angie, is very petite and can move her body in a zillion ways! She is also very kind, encouraging, and I liked her and the class members...All ten of us!
(The photo is of the cover of a video I have owned for a while - and once my class is over I will be using this video as well as attending a class with Angie every now and then)
I need exercise! My doctor said nothing drastic...like running the Boston Marathon. I am limited to Yoga for stretching and exercise and walking for exercise. She was very firm about that - until we get my thyroid under control again; we find out if there is something going on with my heart (real low level after an oxygen test); and we see if the pain that brings me to my knees is kidney stones!
Tonight begins another class which I am taking - it is a Meditation class.
Since sleepless nights are the norm these days - she suggested a meditation class - so, that I would learn how to clear my mind and bring calmness into my life. Therefore, I am so doing!!! And, looking forward to it all!!!
Sometimes you just gotta take care of yourself!!!
P.S. If you want a laugh - then THIS is great!!!
