Some more of my thoughts on my first yoga experience:
- Get a spot in the back of the class if you don't want people staring at your ass the entire time. I feel sorry for all of the people behind me.
- Socks are annoying, but there's no way they're coming off. I'm going to have to look into buying more "slip-resistant" ones. Are there any other weirdos out there like me who refuse to bare their feet during yoga and have some good sock recommendations?
- My knee hurts. Bad.
- I need to do some MAJAH toning in my arms! Holy Warrior II. It was like I had wings flapping around while I was standing there.
One last thing about the class that I wanted to share with you: We did headstands. Well, the other people did headstands. As soon as I heard the instructor say that's what we were doing, I thought, ha, there's no way these
Before she could even finish giving instructions there were legs popping up in the air all over the place. Ok, if they can do this, then surely I can, I thought. Um, not so much. I did manage to get my legs in the air, but only held them up for about one second before they fell forward onto the floor. I started to laugh at myself, and the instructor saw me and laughed too. After class, I told her that I'd be practicing that all week.
I bet she didn't think that I meant tonight.
You better believe I held that pose for a whole minute.
Please tell me that you didn't actually believe that.
I can say that I will be rockin' that headstand next week.
Have you ever been to a yoga class? How was your first experience? Any tips?
