Balance Back…

YogaI wasn’t setting the world on fire at yoga class last night,  but I definitely feel like I am getting my balance back.

My Thursday class is a higher difficulty than my Tuesday class so I was seriously concerned heading in. I’ve been attending this class regularly for awhile and was nervous I wouldn’t be able to keep up!

I was pleased to see there were a ton of new faces in class….not too many people who would judge me if I couldn’t quite get into full lotus. I know, I know, yoga isn’t about judgment or whose better than who but come on, its inevitable to some degree.

As we began to flow I felt the resistance in my joints, the strain in my muscles and the general discomfort that comes along with trying to force your body to do something it isn’t ready to do. Instead of getting frustrated, I just backed off and allowed my body to slowly warm up. As my internal fire increased, things became easier and my shaky balance steadied.

By the end I was feeling strong and even though I didn’t hold all my warrior 3’s for as long as I should of, practice was absolutely a success!

2 down, 1 more to go….
