Let's Talk Yoga

yoga in baliThis past week, my Mom asked my if I'd do yoga with her on Thursdays again. I used to do the class with her several years ago, until I took a full-time job and that fell by the wayside. Like I mentioned last week, I've never really been into yoga, so I immediately dismissed the idea, telling her if she wanted to do a dance class together, count me in. But I've been admiring the poses on Pinterest and Tumblr for years now, and the idea of an early morning practice has really started to stick in my head. Earlier today I saw an image of a girl's progress in a pose over a three month span, and was totally blown away by how much flexibility she gained. So now I'm thinking... do I join the class? I've always thought of yoga as a way to quiet your mind (and it doesn't do that for me). Maybe instead I should look at it as an addition to my fitness routine. Or maybe I just start with an at-home practice to make those splits a reality.

PS: How amazing is partner yoga?
