(No, I'm not talking about running.) I think I officially found my yoga limit of ease. This week, I've been taking things pretty easy for my leg's sake and the fact that I've felt a little under the weather.
As a result, I decided to make use of this month long yoga pass ($39 for first time students) I have to try a few more classes.
Tuesday was my rest day so I stayed away from cardio, but figured it couldn't hurt to get my stretch on as my hamstring is painfully tight this week. As in, bending over and trying to straighten my left leg completely makes me wince in pain.
I went to an "exploring yoga" basic yoga class and found my limit and patience for ease. Yes, I knew it was going to be a slow, gentle class, but I didn't expect we wouldn't do a single full sun salutation.
Sorry, but I believe yoga is all about the sun salutations and flow and this class was pretty much the opposite. No flow, pose here, pose there, back bend, savasana. Thank goodness for the two rounds of yogi push ups and triangle to half moon so I could give my left leg a nice stretcharoo.
Anyway, it's rare that I find a fitness class that I'm so frustrated by that I want to walk out, but Tuesday was one of them (I didn't walk out). Suffice it to say, I'm still searching for a yoga studio in Eugene that just feels right.
Lindsey and I go to Kira's Saturday morning class at Lifeforce Fitness (which is amazing), but I'm often busy on the weekends and would love a challenging, but zenlike class to take midweek.
For now, I think I'm going to have to roll out the mat at home to get the kind of practice I want.
Best part of your week so far? Have you ever walked out on a workout class?
