After 10 days of  not doing a yoga class....

Our holidays are over and its back to normality/reality
some of the things that we come back to I'm sure are not always welcome!!
all that washing..ironing...cleaning...etc
sunshine ...sea...cocktails are now just beautiful memories...

seeing our loved ones and being in places we feel familiar with, I'm sure are some of the things we feel happy coming back to....
for me, getting back to my exercise routine, is also really important....especially my yoga
(thats not to say that I dont want to get back to see my lovly family πŸ˜‰, I miss them loads really )

So my 1st class in 10 days is done, and yes it was tough going....

I really couldnt wait to get to it ....my body felt like it needed a good stretch, especially after that 5 hour flight ( which was not enjoyable...after being up for 15 hrs, then the flight, then the 2 hr difference, its fair to say that we were feeling a little fragile...  )
it started very gently with some nice loosening up exercises/forward folds etc but quickly moved onto some quite intense strength asanas/poses...moving through several sequences of downward dog, 3 legged dog, plank, and side plank which was , for me, quite tough!! 😩 ( was I really missing this! )
moving on, twists of different variations!!...and by now I was feeling very tired..so the arrival of some work on our back was very welcome.....
Our class finished with 10 minutes meditation which was very welcome...an opportunity to rest and breathe.......and focus on nothing but my breath entering and leaving my tired body πŸ˜”

Namaste
