>Power Yoga Venture

>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.

Way to try the new yoga! Glad it was so fun. Cute memory with Sonya and her mom, too. Miss you and wish we could train for something together again 🙂 xoxo HAVE FUN THIS WEEKEND!!
