Well, at least that’s what I’ve spent a long time thinking. It’s so trendy, it’ll stop being trendy and then everyone will laugh about their “yoga phases” and their “skinny jeans” in the same story.
But now I’m not so sure. I’ve been told even ‘real’ athletes are giving this a go. Musicians, too. So they can breathe better. I have trouble with that sometimes. A sale convinced me 10$ could be spent on the mat. Now what to do with it…
Classes are tricky, because I don’t want to be the only one that doesn’t know what is going on. And I don’t want to accidentally go to the sweaty one, eew. And some people don’t wear their shoes, and I am afraid of saying something out loud about their yucky feet.
So I found this site called iyogalife.com. It lists all the poses and gives you great tips and advice and stories with a very down to earth flavor. I like it when you make fun of the weirdos too. I can’t do things by reading written instructions, so I’m excited that there are videos. (Click the logo for a sample). So I’ll let you know how it goes, right now I’m mostly just thinking about it. I’ll get there.
*Side note: I also opted to add Fish Oil (Omega3) pills to my diet. If you think fish is gross like I do, eat something when you take these very necessary vitamins. Or you will burp fish oil. Bleh.
