I signed up for and attended my first yoga class last night. I was initially pleased to note that I fell approximately in the middle in terms of weight and that there were no men. Until the very last moment before class started and in walked, not only a man, but someone I know. Damn. (Just practicing some written cussing for my book.) I was hoping for anonymity. Still, I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that I was one of the most flexible in the class and didn’t have any trouble with the poses.
I like the teacher, in part because she’s older and chubbier than I am. On the other hand, she immediately dispelled any notions we might have that by the end of this 10 week set of classes we will have lost 50 pounds and gained 3 inches in height. Again, damn. (How am I doing with the cussing?)
