As many of you may know, I suffer from pain almost daily, in some part of my body. Just going to the store or standing at the stove cooking leaves me aching. So this week I am starting Yoga, in hopes of alleviating some of that pain.
I signed up through Parks and Rec for the City of Toronto. Not just one session but two. For the next two months I will head out one night a week for my class, then continuing in the New Year for my next session.
The only information I had about the class, was that I would need a mat and it is 5 minutes away. I couldn’t imagine sitting on the cold dirty floor. So I prepared myself a list.
How I am Preparing
- planning a light dinner
- non baggy clothes
- pack a towel
- bottle of water
What Is Yoga?
methods or disciplines, a series of postures and breathing exercises practiced to achieve control of the body and mind, and soul.
Over the next little while, I will be able to find out how well health benefits may help my health and well being
- Strengthen and build muscles
- Increase blood flow
- Boost amunity
- More energy
- Release tension
- Better sleep
These are my goals for the next four months. What would your goals be, if you started a class? Follow along with my journey to of achieving a pain free world with a clear mind.
Looking for something to do one or two days/nights through the week, why not sign up for programs in your city, check your local Parks and Rec, prices are reasonable. There is a variety of programs available for both children and adults.
On Saturdays I have my daughter signed up a sports package and swimming. I will also be doing Zumba, the day after my Yoga class. Somehow I believe I will be torturing my self for the next few weeks until I have adjusted to my new routine.
Have you taken Yoga classes? What were/are your goals?
