Yoga -Yoga -Yoga!
Well, today was the day, that at age 52, I tried yoga. A parent of one of the students at the school I work at volunteered to run a yoga class for us. For me, it was a win-win situation. Early dismissal workshops are generally boring and a waste of time. This was the opportunity to avoid a workshop, plus learn about yoga and see if it works for me. Well, yoga kicks ass! I can't remember ever feeling that good. A co-worker asked me if it was the same as a runner's high. It isn't. A runner's high for me generally is an adrenaline rush that lasts for an hour or two afterward. I tend to become my normal loud and full of energy self. Not a bad thing, but also I can sometimes be TOO loud and full of energy, and I'm sure annoying to the non-runners around me. When I was finished with yoga, I felt as if I was floating. I was very relaxed and calm, and felt so care free. I was walking around with a goofy smile on my face. Needless to say, I will be looking into signing up for a yoga class. Any other "yogaholics" out there??
