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.
