New to Yoga

So yes it has been a VERY long time since my last post but I thought I would write tonight because I have recently discovered the wonderful world of yoga and just needed to share. This new revelation was largely inspired by my very dear friend Valerie who has been practicing yoga for 8 years and through her blog made me curious. I always thought yoga was too laid back to be a good workout mainly because I considered a good workout to involve sweating a lot. I also thought you had to be really flexible . . . boy was I wrong!! After only 2 classes I have already begun to feel the burn, feel so relaxed and have also surprised myself as to how far I can stretch my body!! I also have to give props to my neighbor Sarah for being my partner in crime during this new revelation. All in all, I am determined to keep yoga as a part of my fitness regimen and continue to challenge myself. So thanks to Val for the motivation, I love ya girl!!
