Today was the first time that I have been back on the mat at a yoga studio for over 3 years. I really needed a detox. From the night before….the week….the year. I am glad that I made the decision.
I was aware of my body’s weaknesses and pains. I embraced them and took moments to drink water, sit in child’s pose or not move as fast as my class or instructor. This was my time on the mat and I honored it as such.
I went to Yogasport located on Lemmon Ave. in Dallas. This is located down the street from my house so of course…why not?!
I enjoyed it thoroughly. I enjoyed completing sequences by candlelight. I enjoyed not being pushed, rushed or forced. I enjoyed being helped when needed. Good environment. At the end of our class we we’re asked to meditate, make a wish and blow out the candle put before us. I selfishly made two wishes that I shall not reveal. Let’s see what God has for me in the new year.
We were all provided with nice cold lavender towels. Always a nice touch for any class.
Angela, our instructor was so sweet and so amped for us all. I would love to take her class again. Her energy was priceless.
I did have a little moment when a lady next to me, that I was wishing well as she worked angrily through poses, threw my towel to the side because it was in her way. Then she flinched angrily when her hand touched mine. I just had to send her love and light. Her “absolut” headband revealed to me that perhaps the night before was a fun rage of sorts that was taking a toll on her in class that day. I’ve been there and I sent her with possitive energy to take with her through the day.
Visit yogasport. They have a great deal of $30 for 30 days. My first day was scheduled on Mind and Body for only $18.
