Over the past month, this outdoor fitness – funshine loving gal (me) has slowed her roll and started to explore her inner yoga.
Throughout the years I’ve taken a yoga class or two, but I couldn’t understand being in a cramped room, limited by the confines of a yoga mat (duck & cover). The classes always seemed a bit claustrophobic. At times the sequences a bit repetitive. Clearly I wasn’t in majority.
In my defense, for fitness and fun I play in the woods, on trails, with resistance tubes. In these open spaces I exhale completely, and marvel at the rhythm and flow of our natural environment.
Today, I have a new appreciation for yoga. I am beginning to grasp the restorative ability in the practice, and the physical strength and power in the poses. Thank you Ana ~ Namaste
Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.
