Juneathon Day 25 – Jelly Arms


This evening I started a new 12 week yoga course. I have previously done a complete beginner’s class and a short follow on class at the same centre and have now enrolled in Level 1. There was a definite leap between the previous classes and this one and most of the people attending have repeated Level 1 several times over. We moved much faster from pose to pose with a lot more repetition e.g. plank to downward dog to plank to downward dog etc. etc.

Until recently, I believed that yoga was a slow, gentle form of ‘exercise’ that was more about meditation and relaxation. I now stand corrected: My arms were like jelly by the end of tonight’s class and I am now awaiting the inevitable and unavoidable onset of DOMS.
