30 Days of Yoga- Day 2

Random Pilates/Yoga Throw Together with Jaime from Google

The first step toward accomplishing a longterm goal is exciting. By the second step, I remember that it’s never as easy as I had hoped and things often don’t go as planned.

This morning, when the alarm went off at o’dark:30 after a late evening of (let’s just say) non-zenness, I seriously considered breaking up with my goal and reuniting with my pillow. Instead, I popped out of bed, threw on my Luon, and headed to the yoga studio.

I was the first there, but people slowly started trickling in. We all warmed up in our own way on our own mats until 7am. No teacher. 7:10. No teacher. 7:15. Still no teacher. Slightly panicked that I would break the 30 days despite the fact that I dragged myself out of bed, I did a few half-hearted sun salutations hoping no one was judging me. Then came the 30 days of yoga savior– Jaime, a pilates instructor, offered to teach the class.

We only yogalates-ed for about forty minutes all said and done, but it was a great workout and a sad reminder of how much range of motion and flexibility I have lost in the past month since my bronchitis. My core and glutes will be feeling this tomorrow!

Day two… check!
