30 Day Challenge – Class 1 of 30
I did it. I started the challenge. Day one done, and feeling fine!
I started the day off right. I woke up after a sleepover with my Calgary friend Kendra at noon. With a junk food hangover. Never felt more like a yoga class in my life. We actually decided to go to the Moksha studio across town because her boyfriend was teaching the 1:30 class. He just recently did his teacher training in Brazil and has been teaching in Calgary for a couple of months.
Teacher: Brendan. He’s new but very confident. His class was hard. Apparently he wanted me to never be able to bend my legs again. My quads were killing me!
Class: Moksha. Very runners lunge, warrior I, warrior II oriented
Length: 75 minutes. So long.
Thoughts: The studio is lovely. But it’s weird how practicing in a new studio can kind of throw you off. I was looking around at the lighting fixtures, the people I’d never seen before, and the nicely cushy hardwood floors. I think because of all the junkfood I’d eaten the night before I wasn’t fueled properly. It felt like a fairly lack luster class for me. I felt heavy and unfocused. But I was there. And I did the bulk of the class. So it’s not a loss. Better luck next time, I think!
