Not all parts of yoga are for everyone. But some of my favorite students are male students and athletes and when I can get one that’s both it’s even better! This student was a challenge in more ways than one. His background and mine were very different and I think he was coaxed into taking this class by a group of friends. He was also a joy to have in class each day as he lightened the somewhat serious mood of teaching yoga from time to time.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this yoga class. I set a goal at the beginning of the semester to be able to easily touch my toes and still for some reason cannot do it. However, I have learned a lot about yoga and about my body during this class. Practicing yoga throughout the semester helped me push my body to the limit and see how much I could do. I learned that there are some poses in yoga I can do with ease and some are a little bit more difficult. It was fun to learn something new and a little about where the practice of yoga came from.
The thing I enjoyed the most was the strength and balance poses. I liked how they pushed my body to another level and I could feel the muscles burning. I think crow pose is interesting and I had fun attempting that one. One thing I did not like doing was meditating. I’ve never really been a fan of that kind of stuff and it’s hard for me to just sit there and breathe for long periods of time without getting sidetracked. All in all, I really enjoyed this class. Thank you for making yoga fun.
