I underestimated you. I didn't think I would burn calories, much less sweat profusely (TMI?), while doing your poses. But there I was last night at my very first class, my glasses hanging from my face (contacts next time, I will not forget), visibly shaking while holding downward dog for a good three minutes. Today I have soreness in muscles that I did not know existed (okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but c'mon.. back of leg, underneath my knee muscle, what's your deeeal?). I think in time that I will get better at you, but for now, I pay you due respect.
P.S. Most difficult pose for me? Tree. I could not stay balanced for the life of me. Although I think it must've been nerves because I definitely practiced in my kitchen this evening while reheating some Chinese take-out, and I did just fine, thank you very much!
Anyway, yes, I took my first class last night (a basics class) at Yoga Bliss in Baton Rouge. My friend (the same friend who ran my first 5k with me in December)
Plus, I got great deals on my yoga stuff at Target!
plain comfy & stretchy yoga pants in black
(but they have other cute colors!)
Gaiam yoga mat
(although mine is purple with a floral pattern --
check your stores because I couldn't find it online)
