pieces of art

I partook in my first Yoga Class last night. My yoga experience lies with playing on my Wii and and maybe trying a couple of videos, so to actually be in a class and have and instructor, is a really cool experience. I can see where the culture comes in, and creating a lifestyle around it. I felt very at peace and rested come the end of the class, but oh boy, did i sweat...a little bit (girls perspire and glow, but i definitely had a little bit of gross going on).
My other thought that came from it was that each pose and position is a piece of art. The way your body flows from one to the next with such ease is almost beautiful (well, i wasn't at on this level, obviously, but pretty much everyone else in the class).
This morning I woke up feeling a bit sore, but good at the same time. It's like I'm aware of every muscle in my body. I'm definitely gonna try this again.

  1. I'm too shy and competitive to go to a yoga class I think. I'd be embarrassed that I wasn't as good, or as flexible as everyone else.

    I do like that you compared it to art though. That's a really cool thought.

  2. I'm the least flexible person ever (seriously, I think the yoga instructors secretly judge me hehe) but I adore yoga. I have really noticed a change in my body since going and I love that it relaxes me. I'm a wee bit high strung!

    I'm glad you liked it :)
