Brandy Tries... Yoga!

Brandy Tries… Yoga!
Thoughts before the first class:
Ahhh, I cannot WAIT to switch from all of this cardio and strength training to yoga. I could use some soothing music and stretching exercises. I could use something easy. People who pamper themselves do yoga. I can do that. I could use some pampering.
First Day of Class:
OK, so yeah, it IS relaxing. BUT, it’s also challenging. And apparently, my sense of balance is so bad that I’m surprised I’m able to walk upright on a regular basis. Wow. I’m sure that will improve.
When I think of yoga and when I watch people doing yoga in movies and on TV, I’m struck by the graceful lines of it. It’s beautiful. So tonight while in some pose that pulled my body into long lines, I closed my eyes. My kind, self-loving mind thought, “I’m a swan. I’m a swan!” Then I lost my balance, my eyes flew open, and my brain said, “You’re a baby elephant!”
As far as flexibility goes, yes, it’s a very bendy class. In one way, I have an advantage. I’m what doctors call “hypermobile.” That just means I can do the splits, touch my thumb to my forearm, and do a few other party tricks. I should be able to fold my body in half. But, the weird thing about bodies is that sometimes, they get in the way. Like, I’m sure I could touch my chin to my knee if my entire midsection were missing. But, it’s there and I have to do yoga around it. And that’s okay. The instructor, Deb Patacsil, showed us how to literally move our flesh around if we needed to. Yep, this means grabbing a handful of butt and pulling it out to the side so you can sit flat on the floor. This is very much a no judgment kind of class. I mean, let’s face it. At some point when you’re bending yourself into a pretzel, someone is going to pass a little gas. Hey, guess what. You reside inside of a human body. Human bodies do gross things and the insides of them smell pretty bad. We deal.
We did a few poses that were really REALLY hard for me. Oh, I forgot to mention that I also did Deb’s abs class just before her yoga class. Between that and those more challenging poses, I’m starting to feel a few early hints of what is likely going to be a very, very sore day tomorrow. We’ll see. I’ll let you know!
