Thank goodness for Yoga!

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope that you are all inspired and ready to hit 2010 with a bang!  I love this time of year….making my resolutions and feeling the power that I have to achieve the goals that I set for myself.  It’s quite amazing.

I have noticed in the last year, turning 40 probably has a lot to do with it, I am not as keen on “the gym” anymore.  The flourescent lights, the noise and rigorous exercise just don’t have the same appeal to me as they once did.

I have a couple of dear friends that have encouraged me to try Yoga and I always rejected the idea thinking that it was not “challenging” enough for me.  Was I wrong?  Oh yeah!  This evening I participated in my 3rd Hot Yoga class here in Burlington at Moksha Yoga.  Wow! Wow! Wow!  I get it now.  My body feels amazing, my limbs feel lengthened, and any back pain I had seems to have magically gone away.  If feel light as a feather and stress free, I even feel like I am looking at life from a different angle because my brain is so well rested from the wonderful breathing exercises.

Now I get why men and women of all ages are flocking to hot yoga.  I think it’s going to make the world a better place.
