Yoga, Yoga, Yoga

I am so excited. The City is offering employees *free* yoga classes this month! Yes, FREE!
Of course, I jumped on the chance for a free class, even if I have to sacrifice my lunch hour for it.(the class is from 12:00-1:00)

The first day of the class was last Wednesday. I went and was the only person who showed up. So, it was just me and the yoga instructor. It was like I had my own personal yoga class, well, not "like"- it was my own personal yoga class.
Today was the second day. Again, I was the only person who showed up. So, just me and the yoga instructor again. I am beginning to think it will be this way for the rest of the month. Why wouldn't every City employee wouldn't take advantage of free yoga?!?!

My favorite part of the class is the end. You lay flat on your mat in the dark, with the soft music playing in the background. The instructor tells you to close your eyes, feel the tension leave your body... blah, blah, blah.. more yoga talk. Then she comes over and stretches your legs and arms for you and does a lil scalp massage. Best 10 minutes of yoga!!!

If you have never tried yoga, I highly recommend you find a studio near you! Most places will let you try your first class at no cost. It is a great workout and stress reliever all in one! I always walk out the door feeling better than when I walked in!

Val, that's me said...

I loooove yoga. I took it for 2 years and with the kids, have not been able to get back with it. I do it at home sometimes, but it is just not the same. You don't get the peace that you get in an actual class. It's sooo good for the body, mind and soul. I always looked forward to each class . . .

I'm excited for you, Corie! Keep it up!

Namaste!
