My last yoga class was on Monday night. It flew by. Seriously. I’m going to miss it. I can’t afford to sign up for the next session at the moment, but I’m sure that there will be more yoga in my future.

Taking the yoga class was one of the scary things that I wanted to do this year. I’m so glad I did it. I learned a lot about myself.

I’m stronger and more flexible than I ever thought I was. I’m not going to lie, I thought I might be dead after 75 minutes. It’s a long time to do any kind of exercise. But I pushed through when it was tough and I finished every single class.

I’m more stressed out that I realized (I really need to work on that). It goes straight to my shoulders. It’s amazing how good it feels to not do strange things to my shoulders and instead stand up straight. And the stress has to go. I can’t continue to worry about stuff like I do.

I wasn’t as self conscious about my body as I thought I would be. Sure,  I was freaking out a little bit in the first class, but after while I was too busy concentrating on how to get my leg where it should be. I’m pretty sure this would translate to just about any kind of fitness class I would take. That makes me excited to try something else.

Have you learned anything from getting fit? Maybe it was a class, or a race? I’d love to hear about it.
