Here is a little nugget I completely forgot about: shorter classes does not mean less rigorous. Somehow I completely forgot this important information as I strolled into an hour long class where I was instructed to hold plank for at least 30 minutes straight. (OK, it is possible that I may be exaggerating, but nonetheless it felt very long and there was some intensive wobbling of the muscles going on.) There was also talk of two minute chair poses at future classes. Two minutes can feel very long when there is actually no chair.
Here is the thing though, I am all in. Yes, I can’t lie it felt a little discouraging to come face to face with the ground I have lost since regularly attending yoga, but I will be back to this class next week. There is not where to go but up and no way to get there unless I return. Game On!
