….can always change.
I planed to meditate last night. But when I got home I found out that my yoga dvd arrived! Two days early! So instead of meditating I did a 20 minute yoga workout. I thought I would try the 10 minute, but that was all back bends, and I have a bad back that isn’t really flexible, so I decided to start with the 20 minute “standing” workout. Things like: Mountain, Tree, Triangle, Warrior and some Forward Bends. It went really well. I was able to do almost everything, and hold it all for the time she (the instructor) did. I wasn’t able to do some extending of the poses, but I could do the basic pose. I’m sure my form was terrible, but hey it was my first time.
One trick I read from a reviewer at Amazon was to watch the workout before you tried it. That was really good advice. I already knew what was coming, so I was able to flow seamlessly. In fact I did alot of it with my eyes closed. I’ll have to watch my breathing though. I found myself holding my breath.
I was sure that I would be really sore today. But I’m not! I’m a tiny bit sore, but really it’s more stiff then sore. I think I might try it again on wednesday. I think I’ll plan for yoga monday-wednesday-friday, and meditation on tuesday-thursday. That way I can meditate after I take my shower. All that hot water should help me relax and bend easier.
