Most excellent experience. I arrive early to communicate that I am intererested in attending the class and that it is my first time at the studio. The instructor asks me if I have done yoga in the past. My response, I moved from Denver. She goes, oh, core power.
Yes, I was a member of core power and so we chit chatted their studio, a bit, and she told me that her daughter lived in Denver. Ah, no wonder you are familiar with core power. Anyways, she offers to set my mat up for me while I fill out some paperwork. She asks if I want to be near the door for air flow and I am like--sure, I can handle this.
The class was a mix of traditional bikram poses and the vinyasa flow. She incorporated a few ending poses which confused me. We were approaching the hour mark and I noticed a few people gathering their things and heading out. I laid there and thought, I thought this class was an hour and twenty minutes....must have looked at the schedule wrong. So, I get up, gather my things and head to the door. April stops me and asks--are you okay?
I was and at that point, I realized that there was in fact, twenty additional minutes to contend with. I opted to leave since I was hot and had profusely sweat through my yoga pants. Next time, I am wearing shorts. I was miserable with the amount of clothes I had on and was sweating through. Yuck!
Regardless, I loved the class and thought April was lovely. There was a mix of men and women, ages and level. I felt comfortable and cannot wait to return. Plus, they offer a two week trial period for $20. That is awesome.
Side note...two days without coffee. I am happy to say that I feel great and am enjoying the green tea. I am dependent on coffee, normally, I love it and I want to alter that habit. Drinking tea is different. There is the caffeine to satisfy my addiction and lessen the intensity of the withdrawal headache. I just feel less full from drinking tea if that makes sense. We'll see.
I must get ready for work and figure out my yoga class for tomorrow. I am definitely going. Enjoy your Wednesday!
