I am new to yoga. I signed up for a class that meets twice each week for four weeks, and is designed to provide fundamentals of yoga and get a preferred practice on track. The basics of yoga asana (poses), pranayama (breath work), and provide insight into the various forms of yoga.
I have heard that if not practiced correctly, as with any workout program, you can cause painful injury to your body. Hence, starting slowly was my road of choice. Basic Hatha and Hatha Flow are a great practice to start with, or so I’ve been instructed. I follow directions well. Especially when it comes to exercising in super tight and revealing garments. Don’t want to get stuck like a pretzel revealing all my belly rolls on any given yoga day thank you.
I aspire to not only get in better shape but also to stop the chaos of my mind. Turn it off. Shut it down. Hushtown. Yogaville! There have been many routines that I have attempted to add to my day in hopes of such results. Alas, I digress. I digress to this ever popular, trending, ANCIENT technique that seems to be sweeping the nation. Btw, have you ever met an unhappy Yogi? I sure haven’t. Give me some of that!
A true Yogi also seems to float. I want to float. I mean they glide across the room like a dancer. I have no hopes of ever being a dancer as I am white. Very white. Insert cliche here. From much research yoga seems to fix everything.
Is it all it’s hyped up to be?
We shall see……………………
