When I entered OTM today, I proudly announced that I was going to spend the entire class in child’s pose. And guess what? The lovely instructor told me that was completely fine. To my surprise, my tired body did wake up partway into the class and I did end up working harder then expected. Not too hard though. In the end, I came in feeling a little creaky and stiff, and left feeling lighter and more relaxed. The kind and generous instructor even checked in to make sure I had made the class work for me….and I really did. Today, focusing on taking it easy really felt fabulous and exactly like what I needed. The only thing that would have added to the perfection was an extra long savasana.
