YogaX - aka 90 minutes of torture!

Me and yoga are not BFFs.  We have never gotten along very well.  For the longest time I have so badly wanted to be good at yoga.  Its so easy to get discouraged when you just aren't as bendy as everyone else!

Lucky for me, I have a few gym yoga classes under my belt.  Otherwise this workout would have been extremely overwhelming.  The first portion was alot of the well known poses like runners pose, Warrior 1, Warrior 2, Reverse Warrior... plenty of sun salutations, planks, triangle pose, etc.  I felt like I was in downward facing dog for-ever!  I was keeping up semi-okay until this... Warrior 3.

After that we switched to balance poses.  Again -I understand that they take time to get.  But I want to be able to do them NOW!  I did okay with Tree pose, and dancer.. but then came the Crane pose  - which was a total FAIL!

Anyways - all in all a good workout.  I just need to stay positive and continue working on these poses and my flexibility.  On a good note - no more yoga for a week! Yay!


  1. I love the pictures you posted here. But what I love even more is after seeing these photo's that I did not participate in that torture. However, I look forward to watching you next week.

  2. Oi... Yoga... I remember the gym yoga class so well... I think I was sore for a WEEK!
