I did real, honest-to-goodness yoga this morning. Before today, I've had only minimal exposure to this discipline; as part of my chant class during my senior year of college, we did a couple of weeks of yoga while we studied Hindu chant. I enjoyed it back then, even though half the time I was redoing the poses because I would lose my balance. I remembered some of the poses, and the instructor this morning said I did really well. I'd really love to do this more because it's a great way to destress and get ready for the day. I think I'll start it once the school year starts, because more people are in the class (which makes the price each individual person has to pay go down).
I was actually surprised how relaxing it is, given the fact that one is contorted into all sorts of near-impossible positions. The one that gives me the most problems is Downward Facing Dog, which is unfortunate because it is used so often. Those hamstrings get pretty tight, and I definitely can't get my heals to stay flat on the floor. Heck, normally, it's tough for me to touch my toes, I'm that unflexible. Something to work toward, I suppose.
