Good yoga is hard to find

2 posts in one day- get out!

There are so many variables to having a good yoga experience. I know that, I tell people that, and yet I seem to forget that sometimes. Or, sometimes when you try a new place or a new instructor (or both) you just have to hope for the best. Well, I did go to check out a yoga class ad lunch today, and I don't mean to dis (not you, Dis) my instructor today, because she was really cool, but that class was...not so much. It's just a personal preference, but I am not down with holding poses for minutes at a time, with no flow. Where are my sun salutations? Agh! (What am I like right now, missing sun salutations?) Wow, I really need to go back to Kara and Yoga Works...It's hard to not compare (and contrast, as the case may be), which is unfortunate for the other instructors out there, because Kara is amazing and her classes are fantastic. I really want to try to incorporate another yoga class during the week though, so I will try another class at this place at lunch next week. This other one is called "Hatha Flow" so I am hoping for more actual "flow." We'll see. All in all, I'm glad I went, because I needed to get moving, and I do feel somewhat better. Gonna go eat some lunch now. Hope everyone's having a good day!

That's one thing I can't do is hold a pose for a long period of time.. I don't like that "power yoga" stuff. I'm also not for whichever brand of yoga it is that you sweat your arse off in a heated room and want to die after 30 minutes. Call me "old fashioned" but I thought yoga was supposed to be for balance & meditation rather than a form of torture. Hope you find a good yoga class..I'm still looking.

Hope everything works out so that you're able to make it back to Yoga Works soon- sounds like Kara is a fantastic instructor. I've tried yoga classes, but they've never really clicked with me. Maybe it's like you said- I just need to find the right class and instructor. Thanks so much for the good wishes with the weather- it's supposed to rain through tomorrow, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that beautiful HI weather will return this weekend. Best wishes with the move.. take care! :-)

That's like me and my spin classes. I just am not clicking with the cool Weds night guy any more and it makes me sad. Probably another reason I keep making excuses to miss it.

Speaking of spin, I think I almost had a heart-attack from overexerting in class this past Wed. I may need to stick to the less strenuous forms of exercise, like yoga, if I don't want to die young...
