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?
