YOGA :D It was just like someone would have predicted. I felt light, balance and in balance. I tried to get to the gym about 30 minutes before the 11am class in hopes of working out a sweat before the class, but couldn't due to scheduling issues with my husband. Well it is probably a good thing I did not, because Yoga was certainly tougher than I thought. The balancing poses I found easier for me because I have fairly strong core, but it was incredible how important focusing and concentration was as well. The stretching and holding poses where more challenging and it was a reminder that I have to stretch deeper after workouts. I was in tune and harmony with my breathing which was so important and after the 1st half hour the class flew by. I was remembering the sequence to all the moves so my movements flowed, one after another.
The first 11 minutes of the class, I was wondering why am I doing this again -- but I know it was because I was feeling intimidate of the pace. Slow, so much instruction at first -- where is the burn? The sweat, I wondered? Well it came -- a different burn than doing High Interval Intensity Training or pumping iron - but it was there. Fantastic class and after it I was way to relaxed to get in that cardio session :D And although I did not burn tons of calories... I was curious wore my HR monitor (I burned 165 calories in an hr)the class was so worth it. You may find me there next week, same time, same place.
