My Yoga Challenge Pt. 2

Posted Jul 21 2008 10:05am 1 Comment

I’m back from the twisted agony of my week spent playing lover to the stomach flu virus. I was a high class hooker for the manipulative little bug. It certainly had it’s way with my body - seducing me to stay in bed for a week, taking my focus and energy away from everything except for it. It was painful but it’s over and I’m back to being my happy fabulous self. Thank g-o-d.

My happy and fabulous self now does YOGA, by the way. Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve been converted. I love Yoga. Yoga is the new <insert drug of choice here>… the more I do it the more I want to do it. It makes me feel so….delicious.

I used to hate Yoga with a passion, which is why I am the one to talk to you if you’re skeptical (or if you hate it too!). I used to feel stuck, uncomfortable, fidgety, and frustrated. Now I feel calm, free, open, and revived.

It’s only been three weeks!

Lauren, I'm wondering if you have any ideas on how a person can choose a yoga that's right for them? Have you tried a lot of different modalities? I was really dissatisfied with my yoga practice until I shopped around a bit and found a modality, teacher, and studio that were right for me.
