And So It Begins! 

Tuesday, May 14th

Pre:

About to go to my first yoga class…”Beginner Class”, luckily. It’s a whole hour long! I think the longest I have sat still for an hour was during the last television show I watched, though I can’t tell you what it was…Here we go!

Post:

So, first of all, my posture sucks. It sucks so bad that it hurts my back to sit up straight because it is such a foreign concept to my body. Second, I went to the wrong class. My first class was not supposed to be until tomorrow but I guess I was SO excited to start that I got ahead of myself. Luckily, the class I attended today was also a beginner class, but this was Beginner’s Yoga, Bihar style.

Still not sure what Bihar means but the teacher was great at explaining everything, maybe because I pre-warned her that I had never been before…ever. The small class size helped greatly, and the instructor made sure to make everyone go at my pace, so I wouldn’t miss anything or strain myself by rushing. I will definitely have to look up all the terms I learned today, though. Oh oh and also? The instructor was going to stop the group at an early level of meditation because I was new but afterwards she told us that, because I was doing such a good job of sitting still, that she didn’t stop us like she had planned. WOOHOO! I should get a plaque for not talking for an entire hour. But for real though. Also, my aunt has roped my uncle and I into “going veg” for the summer. The “Bacon to Bikram” might just seem like a cute alliteration but I really do consume a lot of bacon….used to consume a lot of bacon.

Lessons Learned:
– Hyper people can do yoga too!
– Don’t kill a bug in the middle of yoga class. He will find his own way out.
– Microwaves are bad.
