I got into the class with some friends. We're all beginners, so we immediately headed to the back row, hoping we could hide out there with our inflexible bodies. Unfortunately, Margaret likes to roam the class and pay special attention to the beginners. So pretty soon we're using blocks and belts and stretching every which way.
My favorite pose was the "Warrior" pose, maybe because it made me feel strong even as my legs started to shake. I couldn't understand all the words Margaret used, and am still a long way from putting my head on the floor while bending over at the waist, But I did love the stretching and the slightly sore achy feeling at the end of it. The next day I realized I was feeling muscles I hadn't felt in a long while.
So Yoga is my new hobby -- anyone else gotten the itch to get into the lotus position?
