Today's lesson dovetailed quite nicely with my morning plans.
Friday morning class at the local gym is a Flow Class....it's a mix of tai chi, yoga, (sun salutations, twists, folds, balance etc) and pilates with a 10 minute shivasana at the end. I had planned on going this morning and after reading today's lesson I came to the conclusion that this is the type of class for me. I like this class because I'm not super bendy and not really all that interested in a 'practice' or the spiritual stuff that goes with it. I just want to stretch.....and you get to do all kinds of different stuff to real music,
I hadn't been to a Flow Class since the beginning of Reach so I was anxious to see if I would notice any changes. Answer: well yes and no. I'm wayyyy better than I used to be on the sun salutations (they're still not pretty), my balance is good (but that is definitely my forte), I was pretty good with the twists and the folds (better on one side than the other....so not much change there). I was really good at the pilates portion which is core, and I don't understand because we haven't been doing much core per se. And obviously I killed the shivasana because well it was 6:30 am.
All in all a good class and a great combination of everything we've been learning. I also think I like class because I have someone telling me what to do:)
