I think last night may have been the most crowded yoga class I’ve ever been in. I appreciated the girl next to me knowing to stagger our mats so we didn’t hit each other. She knows what’s up (the girl next to her not so much).
At the start the instructor said he wanted to focus on inversions – foreshadowing headstands. My oh my, did we have to work for that headstand. Tons of planks, chaturangas, plus the usual warriors & utkatasanas…it was a full body challenge.
I didn’t get into headstand … or even close really. But I’ve done it before and I can do it again, you know, if I start practicing & working towards it.
My new years resolution was to start building arm muscles…I have none – no seriously – those revolving doors are heavy. But I decided to throw myself down the stairs instead (ie: trip). Why yes it was during the office holiday party, no I wasn’t drinking and yes people saw. But I got clearance back in February so can’t use that as an excuse anymore.
Anyways….yoga wasn’t the only thing full. I got out of work on time which left 20 minutes for cardio (aiming for elliptical) but every single machine was in use. You know, except for the bike that I hopped on and then realized was broken. So no cardio for me, bloodsugars weren’t too happy about that one. But I got some quality foam rolling time instead. #hurtssogood
Oh! And during class while we were in triangle I noticed two mats over a girl texting. Now I usually have my phone with me at all times, to the point of separation anxiety. And I bring it into the studio with me ( partly because it’s my music for cardio before hand). But everyone knows it’s common courteously to turn it off or on vibrate and to not go near it until class it over. The teacher even quietly said something to her. I mean I know it’s part of a Chase commercial or whatever but even people who’ve never done yoga before know better.
Do you often have to wait for a cardio machine at your gym?
Does it throw off your game plan or do you quickly adjust?
Has someone ever used their cell phone during one of your yoga classes before?
