What a couple of days! I did make it to five classes this week, which is awesome. I’m on track for my 20-Classes-In-June challenge. I even got up bright and early to hit the 7:30am class on a Saturday morning (before heading out to Boston Pride!!). This meant that I was already a little tired by the time the day got going, but class today was totally worth it.
Today in Standing Head to Knee I kicked out, while still using my towel. It’s really only a matter of a few inches, but it seemed to help bridge the gap while I work on building this new set of muscles. Using the towel also meant that I wasn’t in excruciating pain for the rest of the class. But I figure by the end of the month I’ll be kicking out w/o use of the towel.
And my Standing Bow. Guys, I can’t even believe it. I DID IT. Not “I held it, fell out, held it, fell out.” But, I held the damned pose for a significant time (almost the entire time). Sure, my form wasn’t perfect (my abdomen wasn’t quite parallel to the floor) but I must be building strength in the balancing leg. After class the teacher brought it up, saying my Bow looked great and that I was rocking in class today. I felt so good I was even doing the sit ups!
It was such a good and fun class today. I’ve really felt good in class all week. Boy have I needed it.
I’ll have Sunday & Monday off from yoga due to work, then I’ll be back in for another 5 days next week.
