This evening I started an 8 week beginner’s yoga course. It is called a “start up” class and begins very slowly, breaking down the poses into elements and gradually, week to week building on them and linking them together. I did the same class 18 months ago and enjoyed it but didn’t continue after the course ended so thought it was worth repeating, with the determination that I will continue through the year.
The course was advertised as having a maximum of 12 people (other classes at the centre are cheaper but with up to 20) so I was irritated tonight to find that there were 18 of us squished into the room. Definitely more chance of wacking the person next to you, though maybe this is a normal risk in yoga classes. I’m still trying to decide if I care enough to email and complain.
Anyway, the class was good, and even though it was an easy start, I was definitely tight, particularly through my lower back and hamstrings.
I got home from work at 5pm and didn’t need to leave for yoga until after 7pm, so I went for a 3mile run. It was dry and mild but felt harder than an easy run should. I won’t be making a habit of this double Janathoning 🙂
