Stretch and Pull

Yoga was neat. I don’t think that is a good way of describing it, but it wasn’t what I thought it would be. This particular instructor is a practioner of Iyengar Yoga. Because so many of us were newbies (resolution junkies, I call us), she led a very basic class in which we learned some very simple poses (asanas?) including only one balance pose. The use of the straps to do stretching was not what I had anticipated and actually caused me to do more strength work. But I left feeling relaxed and loose (and sore), which I think is good.

Perhaps I will go again next week.
