Earlier this week I wrote a blog post about motivation and how wonderful I was feeling. A brisk walk first thing in a morning really does amazing things for your outlook and I would definitely recommend it. I spent the rest of the week feeling great and glad that I'd taken that first step.
This morning I attended my very first yoga class. In the past I have done yoga on the Wii Fit and often enjoyed it although I wasn't sure that it was doing what it was supposed to. So when a friend of mine mentioned that she went to a class every Friday I was instantly interested. If you're anything like me you'll imagine a yoga class with loads of skinny, young women doing all kinds of strange poses, you tucked away in the corner making a fool of yourself. It wasn't like that at all, the group of people that attend this class are all different (there's even a man) and I found the poses simple but taxing. The instructor was really helpful and gave us instructions that we'd understand and were able to follow. Not once did I end up falling on my bottom or making a fool of myself and once the class was over I felt a mixture of invigoration and relaxation. This is definitely a class I'll be attending on a weekly basis.
