Yoga a-go-go

yogaFrom the LivingFirst Blog:  I was in a slump.  Running, the gym, and power walks have been my past exercise routine.  But frankly, I am tired of the strict routine and the constant need to be sore.  I took a yoga class a few years ago and fell asleep at the end of the session.  However, I decided to give it another try.

The local university had one spot open in the yoga class.  I jumped on it.  Showing up like a complete novice was a bit embarrassing.  Most of the people had their own mats and yoga pants.  I was in sweats, a t-shirt and gasp, socks.  Bare feet are recommended.

The instructor was very limber and had that yoga voice — like the artist Bob Ross’s hypnotic whisper of the “happy little trees.”  The bends and stretches were somewhat challenging, but the class was so boring. I know, I know, it’s a class to relax and get in touch with your inner self and hear your breathing, but it is still boring.

What was missing?  Music.  The class needed a beat.  Something that was soothing, but motivating. I think if the movement had some grooving, it would be much more inviting.

I am committed for six weeks, so I guess I will hang in there.  I wonder if I could sneak an iPod and headphones in the class without being sneered at by the yoga die hard.

Any suggestions for yoga survival?
