I have to confess, I haven’t been to yoga for a long time. I’ve been surfing now a little bit in the warm water here in Mexico, getting my paddling arms back into shape.
I wasn’t in shape for surfing so I started really slow. And I was feeling pretty stiff so I thought I better go back to yoga to check in with my body.
Yoga, if it’s not too hard, is a great way to get in touch with your body.
I have been playing tennis and walking, but no stretching. Not good.
When I went to yoga this past Tuesday, I was feeling a bit pathetic. Truly!
I had aches and pains everywhere it seemed.
I signed up for an Ashtanga yoga class – my very first time – so I was a bit worried that it might be too hard. But my plan is always to do what I can, and go into child’s pose when I need a break.
And that’s what I did. I always have a moment of feeling like I’m failing when I don’t do what the instructor says, but then I get over myself.
I could feel every tight spot in my body, and all aches and pains that had been lurking around. I paid attention to those areas but kind of enjoyed the gentle pain that comes with stretching muscles.
By the end of the session, I was feeling wonderful. I think the happy brain chemicals that I produced during yoga overcame all the stiffness and pain I was feeling at the beginning.
I started the yoga class feeling quite pathetic, and finished feeling pretty darn confident.
I’m going back next Tuesday.
