A know-nothing day on the mat

I did my Sunday morning session at Thrive Yoga with Jan pushing the crew hard. This was my first class since Wednesday so I was wary that I would feel the effect of lax practice. But she actually started us off at a leisurely pace and gradually led us into a well-faced class. I had to back off some poses because they were beyond my reach (mainly due to tight hips and shoulders and lack of core strength).

I’d like to write something profound about the class, something insightful about my practice or a pose. But I just made it to class, rolled out my mat, followed the instructions and did the best I could. Sometimes, that’s all I can expect from yoga. Sure, there’s a lot of truth and wisdom that can flow like the breath, but today was not one of those days.
