“a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.”
The class started off well enough, my new Yogi, Eve explained that I should be OK in this class of women as Yoga was originally developed by men. I suspect that these “men” would have been a little bit more supple than me however. Apart from the bending and stretching, I reckon it might be quite an enjoyable excercise.
Not naturaly gifted…
I knew I would struggle at Yoga, I remember being uncomfortable sitting cross legged at school. As everyone around me moved with grace and poise, I quivered and shook as I went for new positions, often falling short of the optimum posture, but I was pleased just to be there and if I can stick at it, I may even become a Yogi too, well maybe not, but I might be able to touch my toes.
Not just a Yogi beginner
I also signed up for a Tai Chi Beginners class – which starts tomorrow, and a Classical Guitar class for beginners too. It’s good to be a student again!
