I’ve long had a love affairs with Yoga pants and I recently decided that it was about time that I actually tried out Yoga. I know what you’re thinking….
No I didn’t expect to master it on my first try… I was hopeful to find something new that I’d enjoy…
I will admit that I did think I’d be doing something like this after a time or two… I mean seriously… I’ve heard that’s the best way to paint your own toe nails after all…
I’d like to talk with whoever’s in charge of this whole yoga marketing hullaballoo… I mean really, I was disappointed to find that purchasing a yoga mat didn’t come with its own beach front real estate… you’d never know that from the pictures.
Anyways, I digress…. back to my
first ever* yoga experience I showed up late for the class, stumbled over several downward dogs to fill in the only spot left… at the front of the room… of course! I solidified my newbie status by slip sliding around on the mat in my socks until the instructor told me to remove them… I was kinda bummed because I was wearing my new neon socks… new socks make me happy…
Back to class… I stumbled through an hour of a variety of positions that one can only surmise were named by a preschooler who overdosed on juice boxes… I mean really… who comes up with these names?!?!?! I wish they’d let me have a go at it… I could have come up with several more colorful options.
All in all though I really enjoyed the class. While I did notice that there was a steep learning curve, even beyond my sock wearing nightmare, I am relieved to say that I was not the one who knocked over all the weight lifting equipment in the middle of the classical music interlude… thankfully someone else had that honor.
I do believe I will be going back. Anything that will allow me to listen to soothing music and curl up in the fetal position during the work day is a-ok with me. Even if I did resemble the photo above.
It may even become a new favorite pass time. Although probably not as much as googling “funny yoga pictures”. That will keep you entertained for hours. Let me tell you. I came across this little gem today. I can’t imagine saying that to anyone though… yuck!
Now that’s love!
Have you ever tried yoga? Can you think of some better names for the yoga poses?
* I lied. I experimented this one time in college… but literally fell asleep at the back of the class. I blame the teacher… no one should tell me to go to my happy place at 8am.
