If someone told me a year ago that I would actually enjoy going to a yoga class I would of looked at them like they had five heads.
Yoga had never been my thing. I was offered free private lessons when I was in my 30's. Yoga? Who had time to do that. I worked full time and had a son. Gabe worked 12 hour plus days. No way could I fit it into my crazy life.
In my 40's my friends thought I needed to get out of the gym and broaden my horizon in my fitness routine I had established. I loved the gym but the yoga classes were during the day, which did not work for me.
I was invited to a class in the evening which I was sorry I attended. It was an horrible experience, one which I never wanted to repeat.
Enter the Life Enrichment Center which I started going to this year.
I volunteer at the center and saw a yoga class on the schedule. It was at a great time and it's free! I figured why not take one class.
Carol, our instructor has a calming personality which is exactly what I need in my life .
My first class had me checking the clock- when was it ever gonna end? The next class I still checked the clock but not as often. Now when Carol brings us into the last part which is meditation I wonder where the time went.
Am I good at it? No. Will I continue yoga- you bet I will, but it will have to wait till we get back to Florida.
