>This week I ventured into a Power Yoga class with one of my co-workers. That’s one of the great things about working at the YMCA, you can be working one second, change your clothes really quickly and begin a great workout without even leaving the building! It’s made building a workout routine into my day much easier!
Anyways, this power yoga thing is much harder than one would think. I was expecting this slow, meditative yoga…and power yoga is totally different. You move constantly, going from downward dog to cobra…and many other positions in between that I cannot even begin to pronounce. My body still aches, in a good way though..and mainly in my arms and back.
My experience reminded me of time I spent with my friend Sonya, her sister, and her mom growing up. I spent the summers with them and we would go with her mom to yoga class. I remember them standing on their heads and doing other weird poses…and not understanding why one would want to do these things and be SO QUIET!! But then again, I was 7 or 8 and just wanted to play.
My first experience was great and I definitely plan on continuing this journey. It’s pretty great and totally different than my normal workout routine: cardio! cardio! cardio! and a splash of weights here and there.
