Today was my first class at the upity yoga studio without my teacher. I found it empty and meaningless. SB did warn me it is all about power at this studio, I don’t care about the power….it is so disheartening. Will I still go? As often as I can for the next 30 days, and when it is said and done I will only return to my teachers class, unless she teaches on the side again and in that case I wouldn’t go back at all.
There was a power class right after the class I was in tonight, and the minute that door opened those people were everywhere. I didn’t even have my yoga mat in my bag yet, I think that the bag was even still on the floor, I was holding my mat and there was a girl rolling her mat out right under me….are we kidding? I felt like herded cattle….who wants to feel like that? 27 more days left…..
I know I over extended, I miss the voice that would yell “keep your hips squared and don’t over extend!” I came home put some epsom salts in the bathtub and fell asleep….I know it’s a bad habit and that’s why I don’t take very many baths. Hopefully I won’t hurt too bad tomorrow because there is a class Thursday and Friday that I want to try. I just need to find two or three that I like the best and added it to my Sunday class…none of which are power classes. I’m there so I might as well learn as much as I can…..Zia
