My first class was challenging! I was glad to just make it through the 90 minutes. At first I was relieved but there was also an immediate sense of pride for staying in the room and trying something new and something entirely for myself. It was one of the most difficult physical challenges I had put my body through in a long time. I had expected it to be, but I was surprised how I felt even hours later. I was energized from within and knew that I wanted that to continue. I am more limber than I was a year ago and I've also built strength. In addition, I've also begun to be more conscious of the mind/body connection and have had brief and fleeting moments when my mental strength has been able to calm the physical reaction to the challenge of the practice. I've maintained a healthy diet for most of my life but this practice has encouraged me to be even better about it. We've all experienced an especially challenging class due to dehydration or a poor choice of meal or timing of a meal. I've also been less prone to illness. Be patient and be present. Take one pose at a time and focus on where your body is during that particular class, during that particular pose.
"My first class felt like the longest 90 minutes of my life, although I was amazed when I was able to get into some postures that I had never been able to before." What made you come back? "A sincere hope that the instructors were telling the truth about the second class being better than the first, coupled with a strong desire to get into shape. Since the second class was much better, I stuck with it and now can't imagine it not being a part of my life. When I first started my practice I was overweight and out of shape, but have since returned to the size I was in my early twenties and am in the best shape of my life. In addition, I am a much more patient person these days. Advice to new students: "Come to class as often as you can during your first month and be patient with yourself. Acclimating to this yoga can take awhile, but it is so worth it. Give it a chance and it really can change your life."
