My first Yoga experience
Saturday, June 01, 2013
Today has been a day of firsts and amazing motivation. A new club has opened up in Columbus that specializes in the Herbalife program. You can go in and for a fee get a shake, tea, and aloe shooter. This is my second week going there and already I feel like it is going to become a regular hang out for me while on this journey. Today they worked with me to determine my overall health. I'm going to post all those measurements monthly so we can see together how I end up doing. Today's number were of course not great by any means, but some of the things I'm already doing for myself are right on track!
After this, I met up with a co-worker friend who is getting her Yoga certification to teach. She is using me as a guinea pig right now to get her hours, but I'm reaping the real benefits by being able to have one on one instruction. My body is already feeling it and I know I will be sore tomorrow, but I'm so proud that even when I thought in my brain, "There is no way I can do that yet," I tried anyway and made sure I proved that was true. In more cases than not, I came very close to either having it or I found I was able to do it. She was quite impressed with my level of flexibility already despite my weight.
Overall was a great day and I'm enjoying just relaxing this evening.
