My First Yoga Class!

13 May

I randomly decided a few days ago that I wanted to try the community yoga class at my local lululemon this past Sunday. I like trying out new classes (like BodyPump 2 weeks ago) and I’ve been wanting to try yoga for a while, so I decided to go.

Not a picture from the class I took, but this is the store and the set-up

I’ve done yoga videos before, but I really wanted to try an actual class. To my surprise, the class was packed! I was a little nervous but felt more comfortable since I know the basic yoga moves, like downward-dog, chaturanga, etc.

I was not expecting to get much of a sweat. If anything, I figured I’d get a nice stretch session.

I was so wrong.

I was pretty sweat by the time the class was over! So were a lot of people. It was definitely a good workout to start the day. We did a lot of lunge poses and the chair pose which kills me (quads. burning.). Overall, I loved it. The instructor was really kind and helpful to those who were brand new. She also was just very inspirational throughout the class and I really liked the sense/vibe of the “yogi community.” We ended the class with a passage she read to us about finding inspiration and beauty in our surroundings, and taking time out of each day away from the hustle and bustle to do this. It sounded way better when she read it.

I really, really liked this class and it had me feeling good and positive for the rest of the day. The instructor was from a local hot yoga studio, which offers discounts, so I think I may try a hot yoga class! Possibly the week after my half to stretch out? Either way, I definitely plan on going back to the free Sunday classes lululemon provides.

Do you take yoga classes? Have you taken a hot yoga class? What can I expect?
