Today’s yoga, was more of a cardio work-out. It’s interesting how when the yoga class is focused on sweat, power & fitness, the meditation kind of falls by the wayside. I found it hard to concentrate on my intent- but I pretty much sweat my body weight through the vigorous fast-paced class! The teacher was also this teeny skinny energy ball of nervous energy- not at all the usual teacher I gravitate towards (calm, centered, sweet, meditative). I did a huge faux pas and tried to do the headstand without a wall (which I’ve never attempted) without assistance, and I nearly lost my head! Baby steps :).
