I've just got back from my third yoga class and I have got to say, I'm feeling the benefits far faster than I imagined ! Today in class, I was doing downward dog ( If you've read my previous posts you'll know I struggle with this ) and was waiting for myself to collapse into the extended child's pose when the instructor called out for us to move to the next position! I managed to hold it for as long as the rest of the class ! I'm not saying I didn't struggle but It was nothing compared to the aching and pain of the last two classes.I think in total I collapsed down from a pose twice and fell over only about four times ... which is pretty good for me. All through the class I couldn't help but think, how amazed I was by my progression over that week and I felt so proud of myself. After the class, I was full of energy and felt wonderful. To top it all off, on the way home my dad offered to get a Chinese and I declined. I was really pleased with myself for this because it just shows how yoga is helping me move towards a healthier mindset !
What went well : I could really feel an improvement in how long I could stay in each pose for !
What I need to improve : I think my accuracy in how I do the poses is affecting how well I do them and how long I can do them for so I'd like to improve my accuracy.
How I'm going to improve it : I'm going to watch some videos on YouTube with step by step instructions on how to do yoga poses, if I find any good ones I'll let you know in next week's update.
I'd love to hear from you guys in the comments, what have you done this week to make you feel proud ? Also, do you feel more inclined to eat healthily after exercising ? I'm curious to know if it's just me !
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
Lots of love, Marianne xxx
