Well, yesterday was my first day of yoga. Sixty min a day once a week is going to be the perfect amount to get me started. I tried “taping” the class… but my nano won’t pick up enough to make it very useful. I will try with my little voice recorder next time. It seems to do better.
The class made me sore, but sore in a good way. The teacher gave us a pretty thorough amount of information on poses… and after class people were kind of pulling together into a team to talk about how NOT a total beginner’s class it was and how fast she went and how they thought everyone did.
There were some people in class who were WAY good. I followed along with the lady next to me. Apparently that made me seem to be a better than average person. interesting.
A couple people commented on how far I could take the poses since this is my first class. I figure my Rheumy will kind of comment somewhere along the way. She already made the comment that I should, based on where I am in my disease, hurt way more than I do and be less limber than I am but the stretching that I do in the morning after I work out (which I SO have to get back to…) is having its effect. I’m glad it is. Maybe if it wasn’t… I would have gotten help sooner… but it is what it is.
Now… I need to get a listing of all of the poses that we did and start looking them up and getting a better idea how to do them RIGHT and how to move from one to the other.
