Yoga 101

Well, here we go again. I haven't done yoga since my freshman year of college at Hamline. And I had quit for a reason: IT HURT!

But, Groupon had a 5-class pass for the Yoga Eight studio, so I thought I'd give it another shot. I went to the beginner class last night. I was pleasantly surprised! The owner/instructor taught a very good beginner class. I actually felt good afterwards, especially my neck, which for my old lady neck is awesome.

Downward facing dog is still giving me problems, but it'll just have to be a work in progress, as will shavasana. For the life of me, I can't quiet my mind. "Acknowledge your thought and move on," the instructor said. Yeah...sure, I'll work on that. Maybe if I had a mantra to repeat it would help. I felt like Elizabeth in Eat Pray Love, yelling at her mind.

Try again next Tuesday!
