I have wanted start a yoga journey for quite awhile. I took some yoga classes years ago and never went back to it due to, now realizing in hindsight, I wasn’t quite ready for the full journey. It will be good for my body and soul, therefore, I have decided to dip my toe into the yoga pool. I cannot remember many of the poses so I feel that I am a beginning beginner.
One of the reasons that I haven’t been to a yoga class in forever is because I will feel embarrassment. What if EVERYONE in the class knows all the poses hence I am the only one who doesn’t know them? When I give it a second thought, however, I know that most yogis want to spread their love and knowledge of yoga so I shouldn’t be embarrassed. If any group can be understanding of a beginner, it would be this group.
When I look for local classes, I have seen some beginning beginner classes, but they don’t fit into my schedule. I want to start this journey NOW so I decided to do some research and take the first step. Much needed information and supplies are a click or stretch away. As a result of said research, I discovered some wonderful realities.
EVERY JOURNEY STARTS WITH THE FIRST STEP.
