Yoga

Had a chance to try yoga again today. I did it a while back in NM and it was good. This class at the gym is called power yoga. It was an all level class but a lot harder than the one I took before. I like the low lights, the candle, but some of the calming or meditating talk is kinda funny if you are not used to it. You try to do a lot of breathing to calm you and your supposed to let all your stresses and thoughts go. That wasn't too hard but I wasn't calm, I was thinking 'I am doing this pose right?' and 'gee, that lady can stretch like a pretzel'. But all in all it was a good stretching routine and a little abs and lt weights so think I'll try that once a week. At the end she was like 'we welcome the newcomers and hope they will return'. Another lady and I were new to her class and it felt a little weird like we were in a commune or something. Probably just the new-agey talk. It does make you feel pretty good after, like you've accomplished something. Anybody else tried it and do you like it? How often do you do yoga, once a week?

Hey!! Thanks for visiting my blog! :) Congrats on the weight that you have lost so far!! You are doing great!

It looks like we have the same goal weight in mind. I'm still working on my getting my focus back, but I'd love to join you in the quest to get under 200 as my first mini goal!!

Oh man I totally know what you're talking about. Last year in massage school I had to really adjust my thoughts because there was so much of that kind of talk. Just focus on the benefits you get from it and don't worry about all that stuff. YOu don't necessarily have to believe in it or "feel that vibe" that they feel, and you can still enjoy your yoga :-D
