Yesterday, my friend Adèle joined Julie and I for yoga. I asked her if she wanted to do the rest of the 30 day challenge with us, but she said no. I really don’t know why!
This is us before class. The girls are trying to show how cold it was outside, while I am oblivious.
The class was core flow with Amber. I know what you’re thinking. But the thing is, I like this class. Yes, it’s difficult. Yes, we did the crazy hold-the-block-between-your-thighs-while-doing-plank thing. Yes, I feared for my life. But when I’m there, I feel amazing! I am an Amazon, I can hold plank position for one minute (ok, maybe not the whole minute). I’m sure Wonder Woman wouldn’t wimp out on chair pose, so I’m not going to either.
Then, when I’m done, I get this feeling of complete satisfaction. I did something awesome! When I was in high school, I was terrible at math. (I still am, but luckily that’s no longer relevant to my daily life!) When I would actually get something, I felt like I could do anything. This yoga-high is just like that, only better.
See how happy we are?
I’m really happy there are teachers like Amber, who know how to make you push yourself harder, while convincing you that you’re having a good time. Although I don’t think she knows how long a minute is. It always feels longer!
