After years of ‘going to start’, I am FINALLY taking yoga classes.
I can’t believe how much I love it. (I mean, I suck at it, but even wobbling through poses makes me feel fantastic.)
As you may have read, in November my body sent out it’s most recent demand that I take care of myself. And then a week later, Janice happened upon an okay-it-can’t-get-easier-than-this opportunity for us to start yoga.
One of Janice’s friends — a stay-at-home mom from Jackson’s school — had just decided to start a new business as a yoga instructor and was offering beginner classes in her home — one block from my house!
It is a perfect, small setting with a few other moms where we can all laugh at ourselves and learn together.
So it got me thinking about how helpful it is to find a couple friends and start doing a yoga (or another form of exercise) together.
Also, I was thinking, what a great business idea… If you’re already a yoga expert, starting up a small yoga class in your own home is a fabulous way to work at home, earn some extra income and have fun with friends.
It’ll be a long time before I really master many poses… but I’m excited about my taking this step towards my goal of getting healthier and trimming off a few pounds of padding.
(And by the way… if you’d also like to shed some weight, our contest entry deadline to win a Wii Fit is today, January 16th.)
So I’m wondering…
Do you do yoga?
If no, what is keeping you from it?
If yes, when did you start? How did you learn — a yoga class or video?
Do you have any recommendations of videos, yoga studios or websites?
