Weeeellllll, maybe not that pretzelly.
Actually, tonight I went to my first yoga class in just over a couple of years. Time flies I tell ya'.
And "aaahhhhhhh" I feel so loose and blubbery and relaxed... almost jelly fish like. I should have done this sooner. My lower back is loving me at the moment.
"Thank you MSW for actually being kind to me for a change !!"
I've signed up for 8 weeks of beginner Iyengar.I've not done this style of practice before and I am certainly impressed - both the pace, the philosophy and the teachers. Apparently it take 5 years to become a certified Iyengar instructor. This session's instructor is the "junior" of the bunch in this studio, but let me tell you, I have done a good share of various yoga practices and I was truly impressed with her.
Iyengar can't be bad. Hey - a yoga form that emphasizes big cuddly warm wool blankets for the final corpse pose gets my approval with a big thumbs up!!! No snoring though !!!!!!!!
I brought Fidel with me tonight, to give it a try. I've been talking to him about my yoga adventures for a long time and I don't think he has actually ever tried it. So tonight was a chance for us to do something together.
His verdict is still to come, as to whether he will continue with me or in another class. There are some options before he makes up his mind. But at least he tried and now understands a bit more that yoga is more physically demanding than it looks.
Tomorrow night we are going to try to get in to see Macbeth at the NAC. The production is going to be done rather differently, so it should be a bit of fun.
If we make it, I'll give you the MSW critique afterwards.
Know what ? I love having my hubs around :)
