Physique Yoga

I promised to give yoga a shot again in honor of Yoga Month. Since we're over a third of the way into September, I decided it was probably time to put my plan into action. I've downloaded a week's pass to Pure Yoga that I totally intend to use, but I didn't want to start that this week for logistical reasons.  Instead, I decided to check Physique 57's yoga class.  I'm a huge fan of the regular Physique 57 classes, but I've never branched out to the others, so I had no idea what to expect.

I was nervous at first when I walked in and saw only two other students.  Small classes can be so awkward.  Luckily, we had a great instructor.  Donna was knowledgeable and not at all preachy and totally turned the turnout into a positive.  It felt more like a semi-private workshop than a class.

As it turned out, this was a stretchy, feel-good yoga kind of class.  A few of the poses made me grit my teeth a bit, but we didn't hold them long, and I didn't break a sweat.  I don't normally like classes like that, but this was actually pretty cool.  

I loved all the individual attention.  I've never been able to stick with yoga long enough to get good at it, so it was helpful to have someone really correcting my form.  I was also able to test out some more difficult things that I wouldn't consider trying for the first time in a big class.

All in all, I liked it.  I'd never replace a regular workout with a class like this, but it would be a great complement to my routine.  If I go  back, I'll keep you posted.
