New Challenge: Yoga

Tuesday, 18 February 2014

Do you ever feel like your body needs a good stretch out? I've been feeling like that for a while now, all uptight and knotty. And maybe not just my body, but my mind too. I don't know if it's just getting older and being out of shape, or if it's perhaps the stress of house hunting (we've just offered on a 3rd house, but didn't get it - damn you St Albans housing market!), but I decided yesterday evening to go along to a beginners yoga class to see if it helped.

I did pre-natal yoga whilst I was pregnant with Tabitha a few years back and I really enjoyed it. It was great for relaxation, as I was still working full-time throughout my first pregnancy, and I also thinking caring for my body a bit during that stage certainly made the birth and recovery a bit easier. 

So, with that in mind, I thought a yoga class might be just what I needed. I didn't have the best start as I ended up running late and had to hot foot it from my car to the yoga hall in order to not miss the start (hmm, what was that about needing relaxation!) but once I was in and settled it was just what I was hoping for - part stretchy work out and part zen-like relaxation. This morning I definitely ache in a few places but it kind of feels nice to be aware of my body and to have pushed myself a little. I'll definitely be going back next week :)


  1. Hi, I've been going down exactly the same route as you......trying to get back into some sort of "yes!" the jeans don't need undoing to drive the car mode. It's so tough with the awful weather, I finish work and just want a big bowl of steaming pasta and a glass of wine! Its all going to change though!! xx p.s. love you to check out my blog and good intentions too....!
