(This will be me one day soon!)
So how do I feel after? Stretched out and relaxed. And I actually enjoyed it. I found myself incorporating exercises we used to do at the start of dance classes too. I would love to become more flexible and toned, and I know yoga has a whole lot of other benefits too, such as a greater connection between mind and body.
A lot of those poses are harder than they look, and I'm looking forward to the challenge of mastering them, day by day, bit by bit.
I like the idea that I will be benefiting myself and my health just by doing even 5 asanas every day. It's something that can be done anywhere and you can do with a small amount of time or when you have lots of time on your hands.
It's funny because in high school we had to do it for a P.E. lesson, and I tried it with a friend at the gym once. Both times I found it boring and not beneficial. I don't know what it is, maybe I'm just at the right place mentally, or maybe I prefer doing it by myself at my own pace, but I enjoy it now.
