Hatha yoga at a deliberate pace

After a work day full of bad vibes and negative loops, I was looking forward to yoga class as the standard hatha yoga class that would allow me to chill in my comfort zone.

But tonight, the scheduled teacher (Marylou McNamara) was absent so Karen Barlove took over. Karen is an experienced teacher who’s been at Thrive Yoga since the opening week. She led us through a habit-breaking hatha class and I was not chillin’. In fact, I was working up a sweat as we went through some slow-motion sun salutations. Warrior II was a deep step forward.¬†Luckily, there was plenty of time at the end of class for restorative poses. I came out of the class having purged the emotional toxins accumulated during the day.

Fifth day in a row of yoga class and keeping on pace with my 40-day yoga challenge.
