Wise words from our yoga instructor from Tuesday night.
Jon and I went to the Buffalo Foundry, one of the two locations of East Meets West yoga studio, to take part in the Beginner Vinyasa Flow class. I have done a few yoga classes before, including a handful of yoga-on-the-beach classes on Cape Cod with my beautiful sisters-in-law Adrienne and Brooks! I've also done Yoga Booty Ballet DVDs and some other basic yoga videos at home (1990s VHS, baby!). So I have a basic knowledge of how to turn my feet, how to breathe, and so on and so forth. But I am always amazed at the differences between taking formal classes and practicing in the comfort of my living room. I think the main difference is I am more willing to push myself further in a class for fear of failing or embarrassing myself somehow. Or maybe it's the mentality that I paid for this, so I'm going to eek out of it everything I can get!
