Just got home from my self-help hydrotherapy class. I have to walk to the hospital for the class (takes about 20 minutes); then it’s an hour class, and a walk home. I’ve stretched out all my sore muscles from the Pilates class yesterday – so they feel elongated, unfolded and able to breathe.
But they are also VERY tired.
I was planning to go to yoga tonight. I haven’t ever done yoga before. I was looking forward to the class; and it is part of my free gym pass, so I can test it (before investing any money) before deciding if it is for me.
But I am severely lacking in motivation right now; not to mention that my body would REALLY like to sit (or lie) on the couch.
The description under the gym’s timetable states that the yoga class is: Floor work and stretching exercises, excellent for improving flexibility, balance, breathing, healing specific ailments and enlightening the spirit.
Yoga is a vast collection of spiritual techniques and practices aimed at integrating mind, body and spirit to achieve a state of enlightenment or oneness with the universe. What is normally thought of as YOGA in the West is really Hatha Yoga, one of the many paths of yoga. The different paths of yoga emphasize different approaches and techniques, but ultimately lead to the same goal of unification and enlightenment.
This sounds exactly like something I would like to do. It sounds wonderfully inspiring, if slight airy-fairy. But, as you may have noticed, I am open to anything that may return me to the energised little bunny that I used to be.
So, you have an hour to vote, do I go to the class or not?
